  • It's hard to imagine greater skill or concision. There are never going to be many poets in any generation who leave you strapped for superlatives; excitingly, Thorpe is one of them

    Robert Potts, Literary Review
  • He is a powerful lyric poet, able to evoke place in the manner of Geoffrey Hill

    John Kinsella, Observer
  • Excellent...Thorpe's poems are finely scored for the voice, but they go beyond the recognisable into the mystical

    Peter Porter, Observer
  • Erudite, observant, an artist with the language

    Martyn Crucefix, Poetry Review
  • Verve and intelligence - a beauty of feeling and language

    Douglas Dunn, Evening Standard
