"In very different ways, both Grennan and Sweeney write poetry with a youthfulness that only comes with maturity. Likewise, these collections affirm the accomplishments of each poet’s distinctive style. “I can’t stand / being in this crap poetry world without / you”, Sweeney complains, to John Hartley Williams (‘Co-Author’). Whatever contemporary malaise Sweeney has in mind in those lines, neither he nor Grennan are in thrall to it. Anglophone poetry is richer for Sweeney’s fantasia and Grennan’s lyric infusion."
