A Poetry Book Society Choice. Love, now simple, now sexual, now bright and naive, now dark and obsessive; the comedy, hypocrisy, and horror of authority; the absurdities of television, stardom, and advertising: these are the themes. By turns comic and satirical, political and passionate, rhapsodic and elegiac, "what makes (this) such rewarding reading is the range of talents he possesses and the energy and inventiveness he deploys in combining them...A supple formalist whose shrewd control over metre, stanza forms, rhyme and half-rhyme is impressive". -- TLS.
