|It is good to see a warm tribute to Basil Bunting... a remarkable poet. His reputation seems to be somewhat eclipsed at the moment, but his permanent position as a twentieth century poet of note is assured. His northern qualities are emphasised: 'his mouth/ made notes drip from stone' from One Geordie to Another. There is a splendid taster to his work in the opening of Briggflatts: 'Brag, sweet tenor bull/descant on Rawthey's madrigal,/ each pebble its part/for the fell's late spring' in a feature by William Oxley. ... Brian Merriken Hill, the redoubtable editor of Pennine Platform...gives personal anecdotes of meeting Bunting.||Weyfarers (Stella Stocker).|
