KIRKUS REVIEW

The latest memorable collection of poems by the author of The Iron Pastoral shows the same sharp montage of imagery, the cleanness of perception, the absorption in metropolitan life. These new poems offer greater variety of subject matter, greater smoothness and skill in verse form. The poet is concerned with the time-death theme, and his acceptance of the unreality and strangeness of both seems sorrowful and amused in turn. In his short poems, personal, tight in line and metaphor, there is wit and facility of imagery.
