KIRKUS REVIEW

Classically derived forms, the sonnet, the ballad, etc. for a second collection of shorter lyrics in which death and decay are the dominant notes. Here also are lovely ladies and cruel ones -- the loss of love -- the gains of time -- etc. This is the work of a younger poet -- rhyme rather than poetry -- and lacks any genuine aesthetic quality.
