    'Delanty writes poems that are wordily appealing in the way that Hopkins and late Auden appeal.'
    Times Literary Supplement
    'Like Seamus Heaney and Michael Longley, Delanty regards himself as a poet of the hearth…illuminating greater truths about the world and the politics of living through the ties that bind us.'
    Kathryn Gray, Times Literary Supplement
    'Fascinatingly intimate, open and unashamedly domestic.'
    Colin Graham, The Irish Times
