This is John Birtwhistle's first collection of poems since "Tidal Models" (1980). Its energy and concentration come out of an interest in a wide variety of formal models - from Chinese lyrics and Imagism to Anglo-Saxon riddles and Surrealism - and an appreciation of certain key twentieth-century radical poets: Breton, Eluard, Ho Chi Minh, Neruda, Ritsos and Fortini. Political disquiet, expressive tenderness, and a care for ordering, edge against each other in the poetry. Dennis O'Driscoll commented in "Hibernia" that 'a sweeping imagination ranges over past and future, pastoral and urban themes'. Reviewing his last book, John Heath-Stubbs described Birtwhistle as 'an ambitious and original poet, not afraid to take chances', singling out a group of poems on Conamara as 'altogether admirable for their exact and loving observation'.
