'Robert Adamson is one of Australia's national treasures.' John Ashbery
'He is as deft and resourceful a craftsman as exists, and his poems move with a clarity and ease I find unique.' Robert Creeley
'This distinguished man of letters and major poet is one of the most significant gifts Australia can offer the rest of the world.' Nathaniel Tarn
'The spareness and taut energy of the more recent poems, for all Adamson's famous romanticism, seems classic; as if, like Yeats, he had discovered the exhilaration and enterprise of walking naked.' David Malouf
