Raworth described Champion as a poet who ‘uses just the necessary words, and puts them in interesting places’. Of How to Laugh, William Fuller writes: ‘There is an intelligence to these [poems] that creates a texture unlike any other: always alert, always attentive, always capable.’ And John Wilkinson: ‘These poems are all inviting, and it seems to me that’s an amazingly rare quality in poems, and even this old Brit submits to the pleasure they give.’ He describes that pleasure as ‘radiance’.
