KIRKUS REVIEW

A new volume of his usual honest and defiant verse by the author of Sleepers Awake, Picture of Life and Death, To Say If You Love Someone, etc. Patchen now has a world wide reputation for his colorfulness, his fearlessness, and his attack on vanity and above all greed. To those who like their poetry carefully tended in a walled garden, his will sound like ranting. To those who value discipline, the classic tradition, his may seem too free. But for those who welcome, in a cowed age, a voice of honest anarchism, this will have its appeal- though it will be a select one.
