Editorial Reviews


`Anne Stevenson has assimilated much of what is best in British and American poetry of the last few decades. She also owes something to the sharp and deep vision of Hopkins when she looks at natural subjects. A sturdy backbone of intellectual vigour strengthens the most intuitive work.' Elizabeth Jennings, Independent

'A wonderful book.' Elizabeth Jennings, Weekend Telegraph

'Anne Stevenson writes movingly and passionately about lives very different from her own. A wonderful book.' Elizabeth Jennings, Daily Telegraph

'Stevenson's most striking work since Correspondence (1974) Tim Large, The Word

'What's treasurable about Stevenson is her sanity, her independence of mind, her love of people and peopled landscapes.' William Scammell, The Independent on Sunday

'Anne Stevenson's work is informed by a muscular intellect and an empathy with people and their individuality. I believe poetry like this will last.' The Poetry Business

'... shows Anne Stevens at her best, extending and deepening all her characteristic qualities: a wide variety of subject matter, informed by her fine-tuned intelligence and an understated brilliance ... this new collection is organized around a pleasing and effective structure. The philosophical and scientific issues arising from a reading of this important collection are fascinating; and so closely woven into the chromatic layers of the poems themselves that unravelling them is even more fascinating. Read it. Fret. Unravel.' Poetry Review Vol 84 No 3 Autumn '94

'The style of these poems varies from narrative to lyric, and with that sharpness goes a real and moving grace;' Desmond Graham. Poetry Wales vol 30 No 2

'Anne Stevenson's work is informed by a muscular intellect and an empathy with people and their individuality. I believe poetry like this will last.' Myra Schneider, the NORTH, 15

`one has the sense of a vibrant intelligence allied with a rhythmic dexterity, neither of which in the remotest sense suggest that the poet has ... grown small inside my house of words ... Stevenson's formal mastery is everywhere apparent ... There aren't many poets around who can write equally successfully in non-metrical forms ... On a generous and beautifully-produced volume she has given the literary world not only an extraordinary talen but also an example - of instinct, integrity, persistence, and a rare quality of passionate thinking. These Collected Poems represent a wonderful achievement.' Chris McCully, PN Review 114
