Here is an extract from a wonderful Sphinx review by the great Helena Nelson of HappenStance on Carl Tomlinson’s poetry pamphlet CHANGING PLACES!
“Love of the land. A phrase so easy to say, almost a cliché.
And yet it’s what Edward Thomas laid down his life for.
There is a long, long tradition of poetry in English inspired by it, uplifted by it.
Many of Carl Tomlinson’s poems are firmly in that tradition, and potently so.”
