KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a ""must"" item for anyone interested in Elinor Wylie, poet, not only because of the poems themselves, forming as they do a definite part of the overall picture, but because of the explanatory notes and interpretation. The poems seem to span a period from 1920 to her death. The disappointing opening poems start one off wrong -- don't let them discourage you. They are ""deciphered"" from holograph manuscript; we feel that she would never have published them in this form. The second group, from typed manuscript have the earmarks of her genius, her unerring sense of the texture of words, her vivid flashea of beauty. The final group are ""Poems from Periodicals"".
