By A. J. Young. (Same publisher. 2s.)—Two pleasant, mild books

of veme.—Poems. By Marianne Moore. (The Egoist Press. 2s. 6d.)—It is possible that if Miss Moore were to write poems they might be good ones. She has a clever and properly fantastic mind. The pieces in this volume are for the most part obscure pieces of prose cut—often in mid word—into irritating short lengths. She may ono day write exceedingly well.
