Lord Rochester's Monkey

by Graham Greene. Viking, $15.95. This sensible, low-keyed biography of the wicked lord was written forty years ago but remained unpublished because Mr. Greene persisted in quoting Rochester’s verse. Now that obscenity has become fashionable, there can be no objection to Rochester’s —s, —s, and —s. Here they are, with Mr. Greene’s sound text and handsome illustrations. Bibliography, index.
