“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
