"Irish poets of a certain age, tormented by the unrepeatable example of the later Yeats, are jockeying a little too obviously for the mantle of prophet, trying too hard for the world-historical note. Thomas Kinsella, by dint of a dry, compassionate irony, perfected over half a lifetime, seems to have slipped quietly past that myth to a late excellence all his own, containing, every so often, the only thing that matters, the moment of moral knowledge."
—Harry Clifton, The Irish Times
“Kinsella is one of the finest poets of the last century, in Ireland or out of it”—Justin Quinn, Poetry Review
