KIRKUS REVIEW

About all that can be said positively for his poem is that the lines do rhyme: no matter what he must do to a line before the last word is reached to achieve a rhyme, Nash has done it-- so we have ""T.V.-ums"" and other forced wor-uds. Granted this is what he is known for, but here the usual clever twists are missing. Boy's muddled room is investigated by the poet who gets across the sense of disorder, but in so doing, has completely disordered his poem.
