Scott is of the generation of the late '30's; an unpoliticking poet turning ??ut mostly traditional verse in a clever, conversational tone; his best efforts have been narratives, satires and some splendid WWII mementos. You might call him a day-night poet, as against the midnight sort. His latest collection, like its tag-title, presents some changes. Scott is now in the sere season; autumnal meditations fall all over like leaves. His craftsmanship is assured, his statements to the point, his sentiments gentle, wry, hesitatingly full of wisdom, or what passes for it. Notable ??pecimens: a lovely salute to Carlos Williams, one to an obscure Spanish saint,) and some plaintive-to-profound elegies on past loves and present philosophy, e.g., "....There is a time again/When you are beginning to be old. Ecclesiastes opens the ??ole in the wind/Through which, soon, you will walk forever." (Kirkus Reviews)
