Note: shortly after this review was uploaded I received the below comment:
“Please take this, what looks to be a whole photocopied review down. It’s OK to quote from a review, naturally, and certainly link to the webpage on which our review is extracted, but not to lift it wholesale. Thank you, Gwen Davies, editor, NWR.”
In respect of the wishes of the editor of NWR, I have now removed any parts of the review that don’t discuss the poems, and those parts of the scanned document that contained reviews of other people’s work.
