"superb... perfectly balancing remoter imaginative and intellectual perspectives with a richness of earthy, ordinary detail." 
Douglas Houston, Poetry Review

"What persuades that this is a first-rate talent is the logopoeia, the insight, the eyesight and the acumen: the quiet depth of a physical and visionary sensibility." 
Herbert Lomas, Ambit

"But overwhelmingly, Sampson is 'registering the possible and what's/beyond it'... culminating in exquisite music." 
Barbara Bentley, Poetry Wales
