Praise for Aidan Murphy:

‘A poet of passionate intensity, Aidan Murphy is still one of the freshest, and certainly one of the most compassionate, voices in Irish poetry today’ – Irish Examiner

‘There is a cold, not-to-be-fooled, intellect at work here; the imagery and free-verse forms are exciting and fully realised; the poetry, beautifully controlled and modulated’ – Irish Independent

‘There is a strong streak of intelligent defiance coursing through Murphy’s poetry’ – The Irish Times

‘Murphy is one of the least affected, most affecting voices around’ – The Sunday Tribune
