Great Regulars: A handful of works prove there is no age limit

for the writing profession. Critic and anthologist M.H. Abrams, who turned 100 this summer, has a book of essays, "The Fourth Dimension of a Poem." Herman Wouk, 97, and author of "The Caine Mutiny" and "The Winds of War" has a new and comic novel, "The Lawgiver." One of the great scholars of early American history, 90-year-old Bernard Bailyn, continues his study of immigration to the colonies with "The Barbarous Years." Beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, 92, has a new book of verse, "Time of Useful Consciousness," an expansive personal and social history which honors his beloved San Francisco.
