About the book
James Charlton’s poetry is both visionary and anchored in the dailiness of life. He networks the finite and the infinite, enhancing our understanding and respect for both. - Bruce Dawe
James Charlton shares his vision of our world wonderfully. Sensuality, beauty and a great affection for life are all here. These are poems not just to read, but to say out loud, sing, share with friends and take into the deep silence of your own reflections. - Stephanie Dowrick
James Charlton’s work has a stillness at the centre. There’s a justness of phrase and a pungency to his words, but also a restraint. Charlton has a spiritual appreciation of the world which is also scientific, in the sense of attempting honest scrutiny for its own sake. - Mike Ladd
