    Praise for Ian Pople 'This is a volume that has much to offer the sensitive persistent reader: the product of a self-questioning but energetic mind, with an Apollonian sense of style and beauty.'

    Jonathan Timbers, The High Window

    'Ian Pople is a quietly meticulous poet with a substantial body of work deserving far wider visibility than it's so far received. His latest collection Spillway: New and Selected Poems is an opportunity to savour his verbal delicacy and fine-tuning. Pople brings a meditative intensity at times to the observations he records.'

    Carol Rumens, The Guardian

    'Ian Pople writes poems of such intense observation they amount to a kind of grace. In his concise idylls, undeceived odes, and scrupulous ekphrastics, the sometimes ominous and always indigenous details resolve as if by action-at-a-distance to a mystery that never decays into cynicism or belief. It feels suddenly timely as well as sustaining to have his vision assembled in a major selection at last.'

    Douglas Crase
