Poetry Press from The Page

"Claudine Toutoungi’s ‘Cats Breakfasting’ is a beautifully lucid and subtle response to this inner structure of Craxton’s work, a poem that both sends the reader to the painting with opened eyes, and is totally of itself, needing no supporting illustration – ‘held with an internal and external pressure’." Judith Willson • New Poetries

"We at Enitharmon are all deeply saddened to hear of the death of Lee Harwood on Sunday 26th July. Not only a highly gifted and skilled poet, but a man of immense kindness and thoughtfulness." Enitharmon

"To learn to enjoy a poet, and to think we understand what a poet is doing, is to learn to understand that poet's conventions: to see what's new, and what's changed, in poets who seem (at first) to repeat themselves, and to recognize patterns, repetitions, inheritance in work that seems alien, chaotic, or all too new." Stephen Burt • Yale Review

"In sum, anyone can be a poet, and poetry appears indeed to be popular. But what is meant here, or should be meant, by poetry? What is its value?" Catharine Savage Bronson • Chronicles
