'Mr Gray has an eye, and the verbal felicity which must accompany such an eye. He can use an epithet and image to perfection and catch a whole world of sensory under-standing in a word or a phrase.' - Les Murray. 'I know of no other poet writing in English who gets anywhere near Gray's power with images.' - Peter Goldsworthy, Australian Book Review.
