KIRKUS REVIEW

Eighty odd poems from previous collections and some new ones comprise this volume by an acknowledged leader of the modern movement in its inception. As a teacher of standing, the market for her poems is widespread. The poetry is of the imagist school, the technique of amassing metaphor creates an impression of wordiness, crowding. Barely personal -- she is inclined to treat universal emotions, often with an earthy mysticism. Recent works reflects proletarian bias.
