  • At last the massive oeuvre of Tom Raworth's poetry is available in a single volume. It will change our way of seeing British poetry, in particular the modernist tradition.

    'Tom Raworth is the one who's truly most interesting to me in England at the moment. I'm fascinated by what he's doing. He's an extraordinary poet.' - Robert Creeley

    'Single-handedly, Tom Raworth has restored the value of quickness to English poetry. His is the alacrity of Shelley, of Byron, of Gerard Manley Hopkins, reinforced to meet a modern urgency. It is poetry of sensation, intelligence flashing down the spillway, faster than thought.' - Bill Berkson

    'Brides in the source nail the soap-opera out of doowops? And then the parnassians for milfoils without floor-leaders. The Raworth loves to hum them toward the endeavour.' - Clark Coolidge
