‘Frances Sackett’s poems combine a piercing precision with a sumptuous warmth. Their subject matter varies from poignant elegies and reflections on her father’s wartime experience in the Middle East to a set of loving reflections on artworks. There are also wonderful poems on the natural world. In all of her poetry, there is profound empathy with her subjects, a deep engagement which is reflected in her wonderful phrasemaking and technical exactness.’ Ian Pople
