Reviews

‘Matthews takes a great risk in setting the lavishly complex sonnets of Rilke, with their remote, mystical aestheticism, in a simple, almost child-like way. It is all too easy to limit and confine the range of such poetry, but the control and insight of Matthews’ response removed many doubts.’
Financial Times (Nicholas Kenyon), 2 June 1977
