Here is some pseudo-modern, artificial, and for the most part poor poetry. Frequently there is a neo-classic note, dedicated to mythical figures, treated in the experimental modern style, which consists of slang phrases in the modern vernacular, completely out of key with the theme. Some of the others are New Yorkerish. Extraordinary vocabulary, -- obscure words, argot, obscenities, intermingled. Modern verse form. A very few in serious vein, original in inspiration and sincere -- read Let Your Heart In Dour Rebellion Sulk and Bringing No Laurel for the best. In final analysis the work seems inconsequential and lacking in poetic feeling.
