(Split in two along the spine fold, with chipping, browning, foxing etc etc.) "poets can do good work and be quite original without running amok. They can be up-to-date and yet quite readable. They can write modern English and it can still be English. I have always looked on Mr Frederik Macartney as an excellent illustration of this very important fact. His new book, Gaily the Troubadour, shows that he is aware of this himself. For while he opens with a tilt at the Freudians (the whole book consists of satires), and deals with some very present problems, he chooses verse forms they go back to the Middle Ages" -- Melbourne Argus Saturday 28 Sep 1946 Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
