KIRKUS REVIEW

Stephen Vincent Benet introduces another aspirant in the Yale Series of Younger Poets, with a provicative little volume, poetry based largely on spiritual and intellectual experience, modern in form, with its elliptical directness, fundamental and ageless in theme. Poetry of wars, of today's sickened world, of religious parables, closer in feeling perhaps, to John Donne than to the moderns. It has an incisive character and beauty of its own. Watch this series!
