The froward mouth and other poems

It was the purpose of this candidate to write a volume of poetry, entitled The Froward Mouth and Other Poems. The Froward Mouth may be described as a long lyric with a background narrative depicting the tragic degeneration through loss of moral restraint of the Loudon family over a period of some sixty years. The other poems are short lyrics: sonnets, cinquains, blank verse, and free verse, twenty-five in all, on a variety of themes, mostly serious in nature.
