Praise for Michael Schmidt 'Its pleasures are longer term ones: as you return to it and re-read its substantial selections, you come to appreciate how and what each contributor is working on.'

'...this is the joy of New Poetries VIII: time and again you discover refreshing and compelling new styles and subjects'
