    'The third in Braziller's Series of Australian Poets, Judith Beveridge engages the world in ways that open up larger perspectives and deeper understandings. As the critic Clive James notes, Beveridge s work displays unfailing dignity of movement and quiet splendour. Whether in relation to the natural world around us or to our inner world of intellect and emotion, Beveridge s poems call us to account, exalting our capacity for knowledge and insisting upon the pleasures and responsibilities of attentiveness."'

Works about this Work

Perverse Verse Harold Taskis , 2007 single work correspondence
— Appears in: The Australian Literary Review , February vol. 2 no. 1 2007; (p. 26)
Responding to Beveridge's three poems - 'The Cast', 'Eagle Point' and 'The Book' - published in the Australian Literary Review, December 2006, Taskis declares although the three works 'make sense and follow the general pattern of poetry ... they are certainly not so.The fact they are printed to look like poetry does not make them so.' He believes there is a need to find 'a name to distinguish such works from both prose and poetry'.
