KIRKUS REVIEW

Again one of the younger poets with a collection which seems to us to have little to offer -- either in the line of context or expression. Obvious romantic themes -- love, war, death, the more elemental aspects of the nature world: one long poem dealing with Lazarus. Some are blank verse, some rhymed (and faultily so). A tendency to play with words, rather preciously, and overwork alliteration for the sake of alliteration. It's not good poetry by a long shot and can be passed up.
