of poetry. His past poetry turns out to lie a long way in the back of regardless of
similarity in subject and perspective. He X-rays his period, its slo­-
gans and ideologies; he states a few disagreeable truths. He is
eloquent yet no longer wordy. He has develop into a grasp at slicing
his personal poems to the bone. His vocabulary of necessities and

ured irony. but, while a remembered panorama, for instance,

lations exhibits, an terribly wide awake poet, unsleeping and
conscientious; to him, his finished craft is neither regimen
nor sullen.
