In response to:
Two War Poets from the March 19, 1964 issue
To the Editors:
May 1, in justice to the fine poets I was quoting, correct three small but irritating printing errors in my review of Wilfred Owen and Keith Douglas in your March 19 number? In the first verse quotation from Owen “senoped” should, of course, be “snipes.” In the second quotation from Keith Douglas, the line
still spring in their climate, still
still spring in their climate, still picked,
and the line
to find them as the great collectors before
to find them as the great collectors before me.
It makes a considerable difference to the total rhythmical effect.
