Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This anthology provides a platform for 16 radical landscape poets, who are developing a new
relationship with the landscape through words and use of space on the page. The introduction
by Harriet Tarlo is very informative and gives the reader a guide to the movement. The poems
are ranged in chronological order, from oldest to youngest poet and give the reader a real
flavour of the variety of poetry within this group. I recommend selecting a handful of poets to start, rather than
trying to read from beginning to end.

Straight Praise 4 July 2012
By D. Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Reviews and promotion for this kind of poetry should far less often rely on reductive characterizations of less "radical" poems, such as the remark about "literary tourism" or "chocolate box imagery" in the "Book Description." Reviewers need to show how the poems stand on their own.

That the poems avoid whatever faults might make us want to like them, but there is no substitute for actually liking them. What we await is a review containing substantial and honest, non-ironic praise.
