"What is the 'uncorrected eye' that Harry Bauld celebrates? This uncorrected eye, he writes, reveals a world that 'brims, marbles, quivers / over its boundaries, wells.' And that is what his poems do. From his jazz-like improvisations to the whip-like turns in his sonnets, from his 'magic cloud of memory” to the “limping lion of history,' Bauld presents us with a world we thought we knew well. Now, in these beautifully crafted poems, we feel as though we are meeting it for the first time."
– Fred Marchant, author of Said Not Said
