KIRKUS REVIEW

This brings together the poems of America's foremost heir to the mantle of Whitman, in a volume which includes the poems from his first collection, Chicago Poems made in 1916, through the memorable The People, Yes in 1936 (with four intervening volumes)- and about seventy poems which have not appeared hitherto in book form. The quantity and the quality of his output is impressive, though inevitably, there is unevenness of inspiration and execution. Grass roots America in verse.
