Praise for Robert Wells 'Robert Wells understands how finely man and nature are moulded to each other...The healing loneliness of hills and waters, and the solitary figures who move among them...are the setting and characters of Wells' poems.'
George Mackay Brown.
'Robert Wells understands how finely man and nature are moulded to each other... The healing loneliness of hills and waters, and the solitary figures who move among them - bathers, wood-cutters, hay harvesters - are the setting and characters of Wells's poems.'
George Mackay Brown 'Wells is a quiet poet... he inherits the tender, threatening profundity of Edward Thomas.'
'Robert Wells's language is exact, the experience of the poem is deeply gone through, there is a constant desire to adhere to the truth as he apprehended it rather than to glamorize it. The inexpressible becomes expressed. At one point I started marking my favourite poems, but I like so many of them that I gave up.'
