Hmmm. I read this after H.D.'s Sea Garden because I wanted to read more Imagist writers. It was a bit of a let down, though not entirely. I love the title of this book, and the "Crowned" poem is nice, too. But mostly...no. I felt the sentiments were nice, but her writing just missed expression and originality. But maybe that's just me. Or maybe it's just the unfair competition with H.D., who I think is amazing. ( )
