‘I’ve just come back from reading the poems in Partner, Orchard, Day Moon, full of admiration. Steffen is so alive in his writing, keen with observation, both of what things actually look like, what the wind feels like, how things grow and rot, and also of character, his own, his uncles’, anybody’s he sees. The book gives us many wonderfully memorable lines using his chosen meter for all its worth. This is very good work.’- David Ferry
