What People are Saying About This

Howard Nemerov
"It's ever go good to hear the master's voice again, that shewd, sometimes downright nasty voice asserting the absolute value of the literary in its own right against the crude forgeries of translators, editors, publishers, and even fellow-aurlerians."
