Quotes from Australian Book Review and Brolga reviews   (2012-02-12)
“Confrontational, concretely philosophical, a blend of the spiritual, the physical and hardnosed contemporaneity, [the poems] push against concepts of mortality and eternity, against life and art bogged down in time and the constrictions of ignorance...Allen’s voice demands to be heard through its lucidity, its passion and the concepts which ‘spring fully-stripped/from the head like tigers’.
Lynette Kirby, Australian Book Review
“Allen’s poetry challenges, leaps from one idea to another, plunges from air to earth, air to water in a heady mix of metaphor and image.”
Sally Clarke, Brolga <!--EndFragment-->
