‘The poets whose work is brought together in AUP New Poets 8 all write with an intoxicating sense of the world’s beauty, its depth and distances. All three poets are concerned with memory and its traces, with artistry and the forms it can take, with the natural world at its most infinitesimal and at its most vast.
I have loved travelling through the worlds evoked in these poems, some so familiar, some so remote, all so alluring.’
— from the foreword by Anna Jackson
‘Three poets, three distinctive voices sampling on a wide – perhaps endless – continuum of topoi and technique. After all, ‘There is no end to possible meanings’ (from Holloway’s Is any of this relevant? pp. 17–19).’
