KIRKUS REVIEW

Here's a chance -- NOW -- to make your plans for being a trailblazer in ""discovering"" a new poet who bids fair to find his place in the sun shortly. An undergraduate, he has suddenly found market for his poetry in most of the quality magazines, and critics are watching him. His poetry is the lyric order -- sheer poetry in phraseology, verse forms, thought, beauty of imagery, diction. No tricks of modernity here -- little to indicate his immaturity. The publishers are making a limited of 500 copies, and these go to shops ordering three or more, so long as the supply lasts. Place your order now -- stipulating one limited out of three. You may not get them, but try. And then talk about him.
