'Robert Wells understands how finely man and nature are moulded to each other...The healing loneliness of hills and waters, and the solitary figures who move among them...are the setting and characters of Wells' poems.' - George Mackay Brown. 'The greatest lyric poet of my generation' - Kathleen Raine.
