    Some of the best dark poetry ever.

    Richard Cory, Miniver Cheevy, Bewick Finzer, The Mill, Llewellyn and The Tree, Mr. Flood's Party, On The Night Of A Friend's Wedding, etc. These are dark and fascinating. The introduction is excellent. In the intro, E.A.R. is described: 'He lived a hermit's existance in a cosmopolitan world...' I love this collection.
