KIRKUS REVIEW

A new collection of poems (the first since 1943) by one of the moderns, verse in the contemporary idion of press and radio, pictorial in quality rather than appealing to the ear. An observant eye, a sense of the dramatic minutia of city life, he writes of people of the city, on buses, in doctors' waiting rooms, in business offices, at bars. His contribution to the aesthetics of modern verse is negligible.
