… with his modestly pitched aims and tendency to employ a casual line formation, irregular rhyme and half-rhyme, Blyth has managed to create a strangely poignant and far-reaching poetry

Peter Reading, Times Literary Supplement

Blyth manages to be entertaining, even oddly affirmative …

Alan Brownjohn, Sunday Times

Blyth is anything but artless. Blyth is adept at concealing rhyme and half-rhyme …There’s much to admire.

Stephen Knight, Times Literary Supplement
