University of North Carolina Press, Jan 1, 1965 - 58 pages
Directly or obliquely, while reading Gibbon or shopping for toys at F. A. O. Schwarz, Slavitt addresses, invokes, or simply enjoys the civilization that has been the poet's true subject from the time of the wandering bards. Upon the foundation of technical mastery, he has begun to build an "oeuvre," to assert himself, and, with insouciance and gaiety, to grow into his majority.
