Vigorous and Compelling : Margaret Bradstock Launches ‘Belief’ by Les Wicks Margaret Bradstock , 2019 single work column
— Appears in: Rochford Street Review , no. 26 2019;

— Review of Belief Les Wicks , 2019 selected work poetry

'Les Wicks has done it again. Belief is his 14th poetry collection. He says he aims to bring a book out every three years, and has continued to do so, without, need I say, any loss in quality. I can’t pretend to understand every word or poem he writes, but nothing valuable is achieved without effort. To me it’s sometimes like doing a cryptic crossword − all the clues are there, a plethora of images suggest answers, and suddenly you’ve got it. A few wines or whiskeys along the way may, or may not, help. Sometimes it’s more productive to Google the more erudite references.' (Introduction)

A Chest Full of the Unexpected : Beatriz Copello Reviews ‘Belief’ by Les Wicks Beatriz Copello , 2019 single work review
— Appears in: Rochford Street Review , no. 26 2019;

— Review of Belief Les Wicks , 2019 selected work poetry

'Les Wicks is a poet, publisher and editor, with a long list of publications; Belief is his fourteenth book of poetry. The actual book is small but do not be discouraged by its size, as you will find it is a bag full of surprises.' (Introduction)
