5 PENS IN HAND

KIRKUS REVIEW

Erudite and iconoclastic Robert Graves' addresses at Yale, Mount Holyoke and Trinity; many essays from The New Yorker, The New Republic, Punch and other periodicals; sallies, stories, and poetry are packaged here. He is alternately incisive, scholarly and obscure as he rewrites L 'Allegro, tilts at Christianity, praises Majorca and deifies the White Goddess. His preoccupations are some distance removed from those of the majority. That stratospheric readership which dotes on mythological deities may celebrate this omnium gatherum.
