KIRKUS REVIEW

Edited by a poet, this is an anthology of moderns, poetry of these times, inevitably of war. Both British and Americans are included, names familiar and unfamiliar -- Auden, Aiken, Prokosch, Rukeyser, Edith Sitwell, Spender, Allen Tate, Mark Van Doren, E. E. Cummings, Robert Frost, Robert Graves, C. Day Lewis, Macleish, Macneice, among those already known to a wide public. And -- as the representation indicates -- the poetry belongs to the experimental, intellectualized school, often abstruse to the average reader.
