"Another poet to place beside the name of
Rupert Brooke,says the New York Times of
ROBERT NICHOLS

ARDOURS AND ENDURANCES

It was inevitable that poetry such as this should win

the whole-hearted praise of the critics who know Boston Transcript:

“ It is pure poetry that Mr. Nichols writes, and with youth on his side, he
will enrich more surprisingly than even in this book the future store of

English poetry.”
London Times:

“ Nothing can prevent poetry like this from taking its place among the per

manent possessions of the race." Chicago Evening Post:

“Let me simply recommend this wonderfully vivid poetry of the shock and
crash of war, and of the thoughts and emotions which they evoke in a poet

who knows what it is to be a soldier.” New York Times :

“ It is fairly safe to say that no poet has written with such dramatic intensity of the war. ... You know when you read these poems that the author has been through it all. ... There is an unflinching realism in some of these poems, but there is an unwavering bravery and hope in all of them."
