‘Superb. Anthony’s comments showed real understanding of each poem and were extremely effective at pinpointing its particular qualities, strengths, and weaknesses. The poems by established poets were varied but all wonderfully inspiring and exciting. Anthony led the discussion of these, as well as of students’ work, with tremendous skill, sensitivity, and intelligence.’
