KIRKUS REVIEW

The themes are mature -- racism, sexuality, war protests, observations on industrial societies -- and the poets are technically sophisticated, mostly modern and male -- Padgett, Bly, Lowell, Berryman, Koch, Cruz, etc. -- many with beginnings in underground works. In offering their appraisals of modern life they are often solemn, rarely stiff. Elemental spirits.
