New Directions review
Gerard Meyer in Saturday Review of Lit. May 20, '50
'The poetry is brightened by the presence of William Carlos Williams, who has never looked so young.' 'Honorable mention also should go to some of the other writers in this medium: Lorine Niedecker for her fresh notations; Willard Maas, for his command of both strangeness and form; Marcia Nardi, for the passion and perspective in her work. And Warren Carrier's trans. of the Chilean Claudio Solar, is an effective original creation.'"

The Cow!' hippopotamus - Greek hyppo = horse, ptamus = river. [illegible] of goodbye = God be ir 'ye. Keats - It 'should surprise with a fine excess.'"

[illegible], Tanaka, Matisse, etc. But in itself this 'idea' promises no more than any other. Tanemeka can keep to one motif & have it each time only technically embellished."
