2011poetry selected work 'At a time when bricolage, cut-ups & the general bullying of other people's words about the page is flourishing in poetry, Edwards' work stands out as an example of what such agencies can still achieve. Exacting works of (mis)quotation, (mis)translation & prestidigitation, his poems are as one critic put it, part Goons, part Proust. Edwards plumbs 'the sold of our surroundings' with an intelligence always keen to consort with the laughter bubbling up between world, self & words.' (Source : Gleebooks website)
