M. Wynn Thomas | New Welsh Review

“One feature of Humphreys’s work has remained constant over the sixty years of his career, namely, the fact that his poetry is very unlike any other poetry that has been written in Wales: and in this difference lies its significance – its power to make a difference to the way in which we think of ourselves and our world.” –M. Wynn Thomas, New Welsh Review

Poetry Quarterly Review

“Emyr Humphreys’ collected poems is not only a celebration, it also brings together a body of work that is challenging, vigorous, making the reader aware of the complexities of human nature, and the importance of roots, having a sense of place. In a radio interview in 1980 he said, ‘If we relied on technology or politics alone, we would cease to exist as a species very soon. I think that is why the role of the writer and particularly the dissident writer, is so important, because it is the one hope, . . . for continuity and renewal.’” –Poetry Quarterly Review
