"These two directions in Miller's poetry - the critique of the material world and the approach to the spiritual - are intricately interconnected, and by no means mutually exclusive. Indeed, they seem to form part of a deeply felt ethical imperative at work in his poetry: an imperative which forges its social critique on the basis of an ethical spirituality." 
Tim Woods, The Poet's Voice

"...a kind of poésie noire, an urban poetry of shadows and glimpses, street lamps and whispers. The crucial relationship between word and life is ultimately mysterious, inimitable and unknowable, yet its existence surfaces most convincingly in the poem." 
Fred Muratori (on Stromata), American Book Review

"In all of Miller's work there is this precision and fullness, the act of writing becoming a way of dreaming more fully.... Of all the present writers in English... Miller is the closest to Mallarmé, not in any formal or recognisable imitation, but in the way both behave when they write. What Julia Kristeva learned from her analysis of the great Symbolist poet could probably be discerned as easily from Miller's poetry. This is high praise indeed." 
Tim Allen, Terrible Work
