"The three long poems, 'Sirens', 'Circe', and 'Calypso', included in this book, are all part of the same cycle of songs. Each poem took longer to write than the adventures described."

"Stuart Montgomery's singularity is that there seems to have been an uncannily clear and intense perception, formed early and in part practiced even before the setting-up of Fulcrum Press. This conviction, arrived at then with no need for polemic, has survived the passage of decades without signs of any impulse to modify or trim. The later verse moves at the same quiet vigilant pace as the earlier and the voice is unaltered. This is an unusually assured, aware and compact work."
