“These Collected Poems make a volume of outstanding interest. In a prefatory note, Mr Kavanagh points to a difference between his earlier and later work but readers will note certain consistent values: directness, natural verbal agility, a love of growing things and a weighty detestation of humbug. The poems have a force and variety that justify the high place accorded to Mr Kavanagh’s work.”
