"This is Alexis Lykiard beginning" [James Purdy]

“This very striking second collection of verse is written by a young Athenian poet who edited the Cambridge University magazine Granta… Alexis Lykiard writes lines of blazing honesty… This is poetry of youth and reaction: reaction to events, experiences and people;  not – repeat not – reaction against, reaction from: save in the most subtle way. As it matures and sharpens, this intensity of vision and concentration will make Alexis Lykiard a name to watch and to follow in international writing.” 

[Hugh McKinley, Athens Post, 1966]
