KIRKUS REVIEW

The English Poet Laureate tells, in the title poem, of the enlightenment of Gautama, the Indian prince whom the world knows as Buddha, when, escaped from his guarded, luxurious life, he found the ills of the world and dedicated himself to the deliverance of mankind. Shopping in Oxford is a category of that town's stores and their delights; Mahdama's Quest the pursuit of an Indian prince for his love: An Art Worker tells the things that make up an artist's life. This is a slim volume for followers of the mellow Masefield, more in a philosophical, contemplative, retrospective vein when ""wisdom's day is in"".
