Praise and Poems
Jope’s continuing exploration of ‘what it means to be alive’ is filled with arresting thoughts and lyrical highpoints.
Steve Spence, The Journal
(This) is a poetry of exile, of the wandering Jew, of the traveller who knows that what he does is better than to arrive… the poet is on a journey which has no ending, which searches for a topos never available except as poetry, as a book, perhaps an atlas.
David Pollard, Tears in the Fence
Jope’s various collections… have always been profoundly rooted in landscape and place as well as psyche, and the interface between them makes his work both imaginal and ecological.
Jay Ramsay, Tears in the Fence
