An accessible and unpretentious poet whose verse is always concise and musical, Peter Phillips wears his seriousness lightly. He is a breath of fresh air.

Glyn Purslove, Acumen 71, September 2011

[Phillips] is a poet whose humanity and good sense are consistently deployed without self-aggrandisement or undue flamboyance; a poet well worth reading.
