Rereadings IV : Richard Packer : Being Out of Order, Martin Duwell , single work review
— Review of Being Out of Order : Some Poems and 'The Uncommercial Traveller' Richard Packer , 1972 selected work poetry drama ;

'This “Rereading”, like that of Norman Talbot’s Son of a Female Universe, takes its impetus not from the desire to investigate an entire book so much as to celebrate a much loved poem. In this case it is Richard Packer’s “The American Age” which I first saw in Tom Shapcott’s 1970 anthology Australian Poetry Now and then again, in its more natural habitat as part of a poet’s consistent output, in Being Out of Order, published two years later. I’ve known it, in other words, for just about half a century and I could still, if pressed, quote most of it from memory.' (Introduction)
