"the object 'Translating the Coal Forests' expresses itself - and reshapes the expressiveness of its words - in several ways which are extra-linguistic, extra-poetic [...] It's strong, affecting stuff, harmonising formand content - text and object, meaning and implication - meaningfully together." Joey Connolly, Poetry Wales Summer '16. Vol. 52; No.1.
