Assays. [Reprinted articles.].

Kenneth Rexroth likes to insist that his essays are simply "journalism," yet he will write--as he does in this collection--about Gnosticism or Chinese painting as readily, and as lucidly, as he does on the more "popular" subjects as the hard life of jazz musicians or the changing-yet-unchanged position of the Negro in our society. Rexroth sees the entire spectrum of world culture as being within the range--of understanding and enjoyment--of the average intelligent reader if only the critic will write, not down to him, but with the reader's legitimate everyday-life interests in mind: information, human values and moral issues. --New Directions.
