This is part of the publisher's ''Contemporary Series'' About this book the publisher's blurb reads: ''Delicate lyrics that express, with sensibility and exquisite taste, the alternating moods of delight of beauty and wistfulness, together with deeper feelings evoked by people, places, seasons. There are no rough angles to these poems; the emotions are always gracious, often joyous, or poignant with a passing sorrow. Their rhythms are suitable to the varying moods of life.'' Of the series, the publisher explains, ''This series is books of belles lettres -- poetry, plays and essays -- by contemporary authors, issued in an attractive format. Each volume is printed on heavy antique wove paper. The series provides an unusually varied and worthwhile collection of the kind of literature which too often must be sold at high prices or neglected altogether. It includes the work not only of such famous authors as Jacinto Benavente, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Louis H Victory, and Clarence Darrow, but also the work of younger authors of the first rank such as Richard Aldington, Stephen Vincent Benet, and Philip Merivale, and many of the lesser known poets and dramatists whose work is of distinction.'' BINDING/CONDITION: plain heavy card boards with an inner dust wrapper attached at the spine; and a separate outer wrapper. The outer wrapper is printed, the inner wrapper is of heavier paper, and just has author/title printed on the front panel; the outer dust wrapper is in Fair condition; the book and inner wrapper are in Good condition.
