Review:

"'Paulin is a liberating critic, who can solve in a throw-away line the kind of problem students and bewildered young poets carry about with them... He is an urgent and passionate champion of the English dissenting tradition, which tradition was never more necessary, never more suppressed.' Kathleen Jamie, Independent on Sunday"
