"It's rare for a reviewer to have no real criticisms of the work in hand, or even cavils, but with James Robertson's Hem and Heid this is happily the case. While bearing in mind that any pamphlet has a naturally higher concentration of good work than a full collection (one of the joys of the pamphlet), and striving to manufacture ways of appraising the poems in less than glowing terms, I am still at a loss. The book is simply a delight."
