POEMS BY PATRICK MACGILL

“Remarkable.”—­Daily Express.

“Work of real genius.”—­Bookman.

“This is a remarkable book.”—­Graphic.

“He can do things, can our navvy poet.”—­The Clarion.

“This extraordinary man of the people.”—­Public Opinion.

“The greatest poet since Kipling.”—­JAMES DOUGLAS, in The Star.

“Verses of remarkable vigour, variety and ability.”—­Pall Mall Gazette.

“MacGill’s work is taking the literary world by storm.”—­Morning Leader.

“His poems show a power of direct observation and of strong emotion.”—­Spectator.

“We are at a loss to understand what manner of youth he is.”—­Manchester Guardian.

“The author has a very considerable gift.”—­ANDREW LANG, in Illustrated London News.

“It is a life which has been an Odyssey, the picturesque life a tone poet can weather through as Mr. MacGill has done.”—­Book Monthly.

“The traits of an ardent, fearless personality, expressed in words of fire, are here again in all their lyrical richness....  The poet says: 

  ’I sing my songs to you—­and well,
  You’ll maybe like them—­who can tell?’

We do like them.”—­Daily Chronicle.

“When, in the terse vernacular of his calling, he gives voice to the sorrows and impatience, the humour and the resignation of his workmen comrades, and lets his songs find their own natural bent, then at length he attains real lyrical strength and sincerity....  For we need have no hesitation in hailing Mr. MacGill as a poet.”—­Sunday Times.
