"Although Kingsle y Amis's reputation has been founded mainly on his novels, his verse was known to a small public some time before 'Lucky Jim' appeared, and since thenhe has been gradually strengthening his position as one of the most consis tently able poets to emerge since the war. These new poems, in their lucidity and their conscientious craftsmanship, belong to the best English tradition, while many of them show the range of attitudes -- from cool irony and wit to savage mockery and pessimism -- familiar to readers of Mr. Amis's fiction." - from the dustjacket.
