Works about this Work

A. D. Hope : Loving Erotica and Eroticizing Love A. M. McCulloch , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Long Paddock , vol. 70 no. 2 2010;

'In A. D. Hope’s last book of poems, Orpheus, Hope wanted to represent, in what he instinctively knew was his last volume of poetry, the themes that preoccupied him for a life time. Amidst those poems in which he explores his mortality, ruminates on whether he will be remembered, celebrates his sense of alienation in a world in which he was destined to be an observer, there is a concentrated emphasis on love: erotic love; love between friends; love as voiced in poetry and that love which is engendered in him for women.
