Recommends it for: Lovers of 20th c poetry
These love poems are very consciously linked to the world of the 1930s. Some of them were difficult to follow because of references to places and people we are no longer familiar with today. however, the use of language is beautiful and at times moving, and there is variety of metre and rhyme.

Note the picture here is of Poems, but the book I read is Look, Stranger!

I would recommend to lovers of 20th century poetry.

All description can only be clumsy and ill-fitted to the richness and beauty of these poems. I'll keep this by my bedside always, I believe.
