    '“Lansdown uses words with masterly precision to paint things as we have not previously seen them, but as we may be tempted to see them henceforth.”

    Rod Moran, Fremantle Arts Review

    “At his best Lansdown is able to suggest very deftly and concisely the so-called ‘thisness’ of things …”

    Geoff Page, Canberra Times

    “No Australian poet is so often moved to celebrate as Andrew Lansdown is. His work brims with tenderness, wonder and joy, all qualities which are in short supply in the modern world of which he is an acute observer. Beneath his gaze common objects and every-day encounters glow with spiritual significance. Lansdown has few superiors as a technician: his use of sound in these poems is as striking as is their variety of form. This, his sixth and strongest collection, will enhance his growing reputation.” – Les Murray' (Publication summary)
