‘Quiet, confident, and calmly dignified’ Canberra Times

‘Ray Stuart spent 25 years in uniform, but it’d be a mistake to pin this prolific South Australian poet to a stereotype. Stuart’s poems engage with a range of subjects – military service, writer’s block, the gasfitter’s proposal to the belly dancer
… others are sketches from nature revealing a joy in rustic simplicity’. Ralph WessmanFamous Reporter

‘From these first pages the reader is met by a sincere philosophical tone which engages emotions, yet never plunges into sentimentality’.
Martin R. Johnson
