A noted critical essayist, he always furnished an exacting commentary on four decades of international poetry.

Scattered over the last forty plus years, only six books of his work in translation have appeared. Michael Bullock's Foreign Bodies and Invisible Hands, two wonderful renderings, along with Herman Salinger's Poems Against Death (all in 1969), and now this third selected edition of poems, PUPPETS IN THE WIND, translated by Stuart Friebert.
