KIRKUS REVIEW

What do Oliver Goldsmith, Sir Walter Scott, Lord Byron Longfellow, Poe, Whitman, W.S. Gilbert, Thomas Hardy, Robert Louis Stevenson, William Butler Yeats Rudyard Kipling, G.K. Chesterton, John Masefield, Joyce Kilmer, Conrad Aiken, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Mark Van Doren, Robert Graves, Stephen Vincent Benet, Ogden Nash, Muriel Rukeyser and Dylan Thomas all have in common besides poetry? They all wrote mysteries, of course, and here, in an interesting anthology, are a few of their efforts. If some of the stories aren't quite up to snuff, the editorial comments compensate. Chronologically arranged to show the changes in style, it's a unique conversation piece for the fan who likes his suspense literate.
