Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Fuller's formal skill has often led him to undertake formidable challenges. In his most recent work, a strong humanistic civic note has emerged in poems concerned with the current state of the world."  —Peter Forbes, editor, Scanning the Century: The Penguin Book of the Twentieth Century in Poetry

"John Fuller is a virtuoso in whom remarkable stanzaic skill is allied to a playful intellectual stance. His work has order, clarity, empirical veracity but also a far playfulness and inventiveness."  —Peter Porter, poet, Better Than God

“[Fuller’s poetry possesses] elegant, surprising meditations on approaching death . . . the persistence of past people and things, and the liveliness of infants.”  —A. S. Byatt, Guardian

"This brave volume offers a proud collaboration between two masters of their chosen arts."  —Amanda Hopkinson, Independent
