Pegasus Descending


by Phoebe Adams

edited with notes and an introductory dialogue by James Camp, X. J. Kennedy, and Keith Waldrop. Macmillan, $5.95. Since copyrights and wary literary executors protect the errors of Eliot and the follies of Frost, the compilers of this (or any) anthology of “the best bad verse” are confined to the public domain—an area thoroughly moused over years ago by The Stuffed Owl.
