Lacking In Meaning
Note from Politics And The English Language by George Orwell

'Comfort's catholicity of perception and image, strangely Whitmanesque in range, almost the exact opposite in aesthetic compulsion, continues to evoke that trembling atmospheric accumulative hinting at a cruel, an inexorably serene timelessness. . . Wrey Gardiner scores by aiming at simple bullseyes with precision. Only they are not so simple. And through this contented sadness runs more than the surface bitter-sweet of resignation.'(—Poetry Quarterly.)
