"In any poem of value there seems to be some poetic element, some inner intensity, which is separable from the language it is embodied in." Clive Wilmer on Ted Hughes's translations • TLS
"Within the month I was thinking, damn it. Could I have skipped my MFA program... if the blogs had arrived sooner?" Shanna Compton • Poetry Foundation
"Underneath the romance he saw things as they were, and wrote them down as if to record the texture of life were his deepest compulsion." Clive James on Keats • The Times
"So is it any good? No. Absolutely not. Good is not the word. It's far too shocking and too strange to be good." Ian Sansom on Auden • The Guardian
"Poetry can renew itself in part by writing against the 'the habits and visions' of poetry itself while still seeking effects central to the poetic." David McCooey on Australian poetry • Poetry International
