Reviews:
"…Experiment and tradition combine to original effect in poems that are metrically alive and often rich with rhyme, yet display constant mindfulness of Pound’s dictum to ‘Make it new!’…refreshing and impressive in the clarity and focus of a rich and sensual lyricism that is never at odds with uncompromising realism…" Douglas Houston on The Unreal City

"…Brilliantly translated and the language works…" Tom Paulin, BBC Late Review on Cloaca
