C YC LOPS' E YE : by Joseph Au s1imder. !
Harper andii BrothIters, New York.
Amid a shower of praises for his
first volume of poems, ''Sunrise
Trumpets'', J1oseph Auslandler has
come out with a second volume. His
first was devoted entirely to lyrics
and in some respects is superior to
this new volume in which he has at-
I cinpt ed to prove that he can do other
kinds of verse. Buttlhe has more or
less proven it.
Th'le most striking part of his work}
is the clever manner in which he
rhyt hmically manipulates words,
which, after all, is about the only me-1
chlinmcal standard by which one canj
judge modern poetry. Mr. Auslandera
mnight be (called a master of words.
I tt while he has conisistent lvmanl-
tainiet this cleverness, lie has not
done so at the expense of the real
purpose of poetry-the recreation andj
the arousinug of the b~asic emiotions of;i
mnan. 'There is an emnotional depth to
his poems which is spirited and thrill-
ing. One is forced to suffer as he
reads-and to cry when the burden
becomes too gtreat for a human heart.
The poem which gives the volume
its title is the story of a dream in.
which the writer is force d to suffer
All the Horror and heartbreaks o~f the'
amnimal world through the Cyclops'
Eve in his heart. It is decidedlly an
appropriate title for the volumne for
that is just what it is-suffering andI
tears, horror and futility garnished
with a bit of love; enclosed between
two cloth covers.
The first poemn in the book, "Steel,"
caised quiite a sensation when it first'
appeared in The American Mercury
some time ago. If it should bring
comment from no one else, a mill1
owner should feel impelled to say
something, for it brings out the awful-
ness of working in a stee'l mill trying
to direct overpowering forces which1

which was "pink trying to be purple."
"The Mauve Dec~ade" will appeal to
few readers over forty. It is mainly
for that group which has grown upf
since 1900 and therefore Noes not cher-
ish the tiratitions and institutions of:
the goodi old days of the 1890's.
'For 'Mr 1. Beer has little reverence
for thrig fetishes of the closing years
of the nineteenthI cent ury. Especially
severe is he, and justifiably so, with
the conventional moralities of late-
Vietorianismn as imanifested in Am-j
e'ri Ca.F

Disecting these thoughts and dreams Barrie

rof youth, he uses his lively ability of
comparison and analysis to mneca-
scionsly show the reader that th{,y-
w vould he his htoughts too, if he hew
had the power to think as skillfully,
moulded and yet as versatile thoughts
as the author. Thus the reader who is
at least partially able-minded is in-
evitably led ito a train of thought of
his own.

e ntirely personal with here and there,
