“…it is the poet, as well as the reader, who is the surprised spirit. The writing is an opening out from the self… an opening that does not escape from language, but points beyond language…” Jeremy Hooker

“The poems inhabit a world that is agitatedly cool, and the pictures a world that lies with you and burns you up.” Edwin Morgan (Parataxis)
