KIRKUS REVIEW

Interweaving sonnet sequence, poems of love on the carpe diem theme, with pleasingly modern technique and distinct virtuosity. Soft, tenuous, lyrical -- Aiken's use of repetition, of visual patterns, give them marked individuality. While there is nothing exceptionally novel in thought, his poetic medium and his technical skill are intriguing.
