Poets as different as Ted Hughes, George Oppen and Jeff Nuttall have expressed unreserved admiration for Jonathan Griffin's work. According to the American poet and critic Eliot Weinberger, Griffin is 'perhaps the finest unknown poet in our language... His is a [petry of planetary consciousness...the poet's response both ecstasy and rage'.
Jonathan Delamont's careful selection of Griffin's work is intended to confer upon him, at last, his rightful reputation.
