  • Praise for Clive Wilmer 'The Falls offers beguiling glimpses of a world in which the earthly and the heavenly manifest their independence'.
    Jem Poster, PN Review
    '[His poems are] seamlessly constructed... his style is cool, formal, crisp and energetic.'
    John Greening, the TLS
     'A great talent may come from the bringing together of a need with powers that would not seem likely to answer it. I think this may be so with Clive'€™s work, much of which originates from a vague spiritual hunger but which he is forced to realize through an imagination at once precise and rich: the result is his superb poetry.'
    Thom Gunn, 1995
