    Praise for John Heath-Stubbs 'It's a reflection of Heath-Stubbs's creative generousity that he writes warmly about apparently trivial things, sometimes in a way that explores or hints at the momentous implications behind them'
    Edmund Prestwich, The North
    'His range of subject matter is panoramic, and his control of emotion and intention the best of his generation.'
    Poetry Review
     'In his poetry, the literature of the past is an important inspiration, as are the images that inhabit it.'
    Trevor Tolley
    'His poetry is formidable, amiable, hugely intelligent and sacramental.'
    Times Literary Supplement.
