KIRKUS REVIEW

An attractive, pocket size volume of 163 love poems, collected to fill a constant demand on the part of men in the armed forces (and the girls they left behind them). Divided topically into poems of courtship, fulfillment, doubt, parting, remembrance. The ""old"" include classic favorites, Spenser, Marlowe, Shakespeare, Herrick, Shelley, Keats, Browning, Burns, Rossetti, Wordsworth, Tennyson, etc. The ""new"" are fairly representative, -- Millay, Benet, Teasdale, Frost, Eliot, Auden, etc. A neat job for a real need.
