Product description


"If genius is operating anywhere in English poetry at present, I feel it is here, in Burnside's singular music" (Adam Thorpe Observer)

"A stunningly good writer of poetry and fiction" (Independent)

"One of the most outstandingly gifted poets in Britain. He, like one of his subjects, is 'turned into the plainsong of the stars'" (Scotsman)

"Burnside has a stillness and emotional restraint, a respect for the observer and observed alike which is serious, exemplary and rare" (Times Literary Supplement)

"I love the way John Burnside looks at the world. He doesn't just look: he watches. He sees into the secret spaces that lie somewhere between the hidden and the revealed... [He] crafts a poetry as precise in its detail, as subtle in its perceptions, as respectful in its attentions as the blade of a brain surgeon's scalpel" (Rachel Campbell-Johnston The Times)
