KIRKUS REVIEW

A selection of the finest work from earlier anthologies, and some hitherto unpublished (in book form) poems. Gregory is one of the most stimulating and best established of the so-called revolutionary poets. Whether in the sordid urban life of his early work, the economic struggle, or the world today of his later poems, his is a strong social attitude. Much in his technique is new, -- his use of the conversational rather than the poetic language, of monologue, etc. There is a great deal that is indirect and difficult for the lay poetry reader, but his is an important name.
