Aiken wrote extensively on contemporary poetry for
the major literary journals on both sides of the Atlantic. This work collects
thirty of his reviews, including ‘The Return of Romanticism’
(4), ‘Sunt Rerum Lacrymae’
(5), and others that set forth misgivings
about Imagism and especially the contributions offered it by Amy Lowell.
