Editorial Reviews


“Davidson has only begun to tell us the things he could about himself and his colleagues. The best part of this fine little volume is the intimate descriptions of the early meetings of the Fugitives, the personalities, the ‘insignificant’ little details that together give us an insight into what it must have been like to have been writing poetry and talking about it at Vanderbilt just before and during the early 1920s, when the Fugitives were taking shape.”—Louis D. Rubin, Jr.

“The vision of a world rapidly disintegrating because man no longer believes ‘history and ancient fables have anything to do with the present’ is as relevant today as it was thirty years ago. But now that the opportunity has passed, and one can only hope that this well-edited, a ractively presented book will assist in giving Wade the public recognition he so amply deserves.”—Thomas Daniel Young
