"A contemporary who should endure over the life of our language." --Donald Hall

"One of the most perfect poets alive. There is something in his work both ancient and modern. I read him as I might check the sky for stars." --Sebastian Barry "Michael Longley's poems have matched a sense of history and the brutal present with a recurrent feeling for the lyrical moment and the fragility of experience." --James Fenton
