  • Not an easy read like much good poetry, it took and repaid effort I preferred the shorter poems which, at best, had a directness, an emotional immediacy and clarity of vision Read The Hunt , The Rat not so much a poem about a rat as a poem about a poem about a rat I couldn t manage the scots poems to be honest But all in all well worth the effort.


  • The kind of poetry has the ability to suck you in, ever so slowly, but ever so surely, and lead you into a new world of the most moving language and images It s the kind of book you can become obsessed with.


  • This is another five star for me Contemporary poems, using today s vibrant sometimes quirky language and yet some felt as though they were firmly rooted in tradition My favorite was The Black Box, for it s range and strength But I loved them all.


  • Some lovely reflective moments here I post this in testament than hope or warning With its avian knack of mimcry, its song is like a loop tape of the children it has tortured What would a little pity have set you back


  • My teacher The guy who taught me what it looks like when a poem stands up and walks around Really tight poems.


  • A talent craftsman with an uncommon intellect, deep insight, and the ability to mix this in fascinating ways with quirky humor.


  • 3 1 2 starsPaterson is very popular, and I do like some of his poems In this collection I truly liked about one third of them and moderately liked about 1 3 Some I must admit I did not cotton to at all Among my favorites were Waking with Russell, The Gift, and Letter to the Twins Some of the poetry is very sensual.


  • A lovely book of poetry that demanded attention and close detail These are poems that extract beauty and reflection in the midst of tight form.


  • travel.nytimes 2011 10 09 One morning you hover on the threshold, knowing for certain the first touch of the light will finish you From The Forest of the Suicides There it roots, and drives up through the clay to grow into the shape of its own anguish p 15 From A Talking Book First, to those rare birdsfor whom all journeyings are heavenwards,who always wing it, mapless and alone p 28 By all means, turn the page or close the book.But first, imagine how this world would lookwere it not duly filter [...]


  • A frustrating book The language is clever and beautiful, especially when it startles you with prosiac modernity, but much of it seems to be about subjects of which I know nothing meaning that many of the poems in English were no comprehensible than those written in Scots and the Scots at least had some translation


  • Difficult to read I really enjoyed The Rat though, scottishpoetrylibrary which is amusing considering its theme Like the poet within that poem I don t understand the craft enough to enjoy the rest of the collection.



  • I just remembered reading this book a few years back Unfortunately, I can t remember much about the actual book I think I liked it
