concept of leisure into his an-
alysis, at last. He uses the
motor assembler as the typical
figure of contemporary indus
trial production and the very
symbol of alienation. I concur
wholeheartedly, having assem-
bled motor parts myself. The
use of a wife's account of her
husband's energy loss is well
placed. Auto making tends to
stop several human functions
and then inertiacreeps into your
entire life. Leisure becomes
monotonous.
Here all stops. Just like punch-
ing-out on a time clock. Clayre
packs up his lunch box and goes
bone. The book ends without
really justifying the study. The
reader is no better able to un-
derstand his own work situation
(a universal concept) from
Clayre's work. The philosophers
chosen accurately expound on
the nature of man and his work,
but Clayre does not clearly re-
late work experiences or deal
with leisure in a sufficient man-
ner. His results are often cor-
rect and concise, however it is
difficult to use his framework
as support for the conclusions.
Literary advice: needs work.

left on the first of three lecture
tours of America. To this im-
prudent and penniless poet the
United States was a promised
land of easily won riches. It
was also a vast continental par-
ty, or $o it seemed, due to that
destroying kindness pressed up-
on the poet from all quarters.
John Brinnin, the American poet
and critic responsible for ar-
ranging Thomas's tour, has pro-
vided a record of his excesses
abroad in Dylan Thomas in
America; it's the chronicle of
the self-destructive poet in the
midst of killing kindness. Sin
clair gets to the heart of the
tragedy:
As Caitlin knew, if Dylan
could get away with the re-
sposibility for his excesses
by appearing to have them
put upon him, he would do
so. For then he could excuse
his Welsh conscience and
-sense of sin; it was not him,
it was the others. Some are
born drunks, some achieve
drunkenness, but Dylan liked
to have 'drunkenness thrust
upon him. This America liked
to do, and Brinnin could not
stop it.
YN TE LAST PAGES of this
book, the "legacy" chapter,
Sinclair repeats what is obvious
from the foregoing text, that

Thomas was a host of warring
contradictions, a man with tal-
ent to burn who instead immo-
lated himself. Sinclair has writ-
ten a good appreciation of a
legendary poet; the text and
pictures are as warmly evoca-
tive of the man as Christmas
in Wales is of childhood. But
it does seem like too much
sweetness and light. Sinclair is
indulgent, forgiving, elevating;
his graceful interweaving of
Thomas's life and work, inas-
much as it frames and glorifies
an important poet, bears a like-
ness to those decorative illum-
inations so carefully and loving-
ly inscribed onto church texts
by medieval ecclesiastics.

Of all flowers. orchids offer the most dazzling variations in form and color. They can .
be evil and sinister-almost extraterrestrial-or they can be lovable little blossoms

tv and Mr. Kramer's hiahly readable account of orchid fact and folklore, care and
cultivation makes this beautiful book a joy for the interested and ultimately useful
for the devotee. An excellent bibliography, listing of orchid genera, and a section on
sources for plants add to the volume's value.
