‘radical and uncompromising’

“…MONUMENTAL” Dic Edwards

“Working where all is movement, where the apparent solidity of the world is disturbed by the sure spotlight of intense metaphysical probing. Calcutt’s radical diction and subtle vigour combine to teach us exactly what “happens when light changes”‘ – Perdika Press

”…Loaded with surprise, at times chant-like in repetition. Calcutt’s poems are compressed, indeed spring-loaded much like Emily Dickinson. Abruptly pointing towards something surprising, and new.” Robert Peake, Poetry Salzburg Reviews (Austria) 2014 

‘Perdika can celebrate a ‘sudden rainfall’ in one significantly green fringe of what sometimes seems a fast-encroaching desert.’ Mario Petrucci
