This review is from: Oracle Bones (Paperback)
I hadn't come across James Harpur until this book (I've now bought his previous collections) and dsicovering him proved a delight. The poems are quiet and thoughtful and the handling of language is subtle and assured. I think Harpur is head and shoulders above the many showy or self-publicising poets who have acquired more public recognition.
