KIRKUS REVIEW

The latest volume in the Yale Series of Younger Poets- representative of that phase of obscurity- a kind of Byzantine obscurity, polished and elegant. It is possible that her acute sense perceptions may someday take on meaning for others beside herself -- enough of her words may be accumulated and we may thereby become sufficiently familiar with the furnishings of her mind to understand her. At present all one can say is that she has elegance, that she belongs to the ""Activists"" group (as Auden tells us in his over-anxious introduction). She has talent of a sort, and a fine ear for words, though not for meaning. One can only wonder and wait....Of interest to other poets, but definitely not for the general public.
