‘The most engaged, challenging and serious-minded of all the UK’s poetry magazines.’
Simon Armitage

'...probably the most informative and entertaining poetry journal in the English-speaking world.'
John Ashbery

‘…the premier British poetry journal. Its coverage is broad and generous: from John Ashbery to new young English poets, from essays on Continental poetics and fiction to reviews of neglected poets both living and dead. At a time when poetry is largely neglected, [it] continues to make an eloquent case for its centrality to our culture.'
Marjorie Perloff

'...high-toned but bracing.'
Boyd Tonkin, Independent

'It has attempted to take poetry out of the backwaters of intellectual life and to find in it again the crucial index of cultural health.'
Cairns Craig, Times Literary Supplement
