KIRKUS REVIEW

A three volume boxed set with translation by Professor Thomas Bergin of Yale and illustrated by 120 wash line drawings by the contemporary sculptor and graphic artist, Leonard Baskin. The meticulously cool and low keyed blank verse translation is intensely, even violently, particularized and humanized by Baskin. Not to everyman's taste or pocketbook but a handsome production (8 5/8"" x 13"") and stimulating.
