“Beveridge’s poems restore the fabric of the world—rent as it so often seems—by bringing the fictive and the real together, joining them with hook and eye so that we may try on a new perspective, clothing our imagination with her vivifying vision.”

— Paul Kane

“Quite apart from its unfailing dignity of movement and quiet splendour of analytical diction, what I find daunting in her poetry is how it examines in microscopic detail the order of natural events that I usually fail to notice at all.”

— Clive James
