"The books from Dedalus now look superb, as befits the printing of serious verse... There is much in the Sampler: a brilliant moment of Wordsworthian revelation in James McAuley ('The Hill Walkers'); a keen immediacy in Pat Boran ('Still Life'); the ascetic gentleness of Paddy Bushe; and much more... As they say in the ads: buy this book."
