Jorūnė Jonikaitė (ar tik ne lietuvių kalbos istoriko Petro Joniko dukra?) straipsnely apie Joną Aistį (buvo išsp. Bostone ėjusio Keleivio angliškoj skilty; datos nežinau, LLTI BR F100 yra tik iškarpa):
I could compare him to many poets and discuss their styles and content. The only comparison I will make between Aistis and any other specific poet, however, is to say that his style, ideas and presentations are most like those of the English poet, A. E. Housman. I chose Housman as a comparison only to clarify the type of poetry involved.
Aistis, like Housman, is not a modern poet, but his metered flowing verses are just as passionate and as true as the unstructured and sometimes incomprehensible verse of tomorrow’s bitter poets.
