KIRKUS REVIEW

A new collection by one of the later impressionists (The Man With The Blue Guitar was his last) and which again presents skilled, ingenious lyrics which are mental --metaphysical -- and which carry out his belief that a ""poem is the act of the mind"". Elliptic, often deliberately tricksy, in manner -- his issues are largely contemporary and ironically concluded. Eclectic.
