"Notes wears its nerves on the surface, revealing a voice, or voices, which plunge to the edge of despair without falling prey to the merely personal... Yeats, Eliot, Dante, Blake, Schubert, Catullus, among others, are the resident ghosts in this delicate apparatus and yet Notes find its own serene voice in the midst of all those masters of silence. It is so because these poems are both personal and impersonal. They write with brutal candour about the heart of human fragility."
