“The Strange Estate is a rich cache of poetry, a rare word-horde if ever there was one. From the ‘breathless sounding/Of the worm’s earth-dark’ in Muck Island,through the finely-wrought music of ‘The Moongate Sonnets’, to a quiet voice, on “The Shadowed Path”, that makes the shadows real, Adrian Rice offers poetry that tunes the ear, and awakens mind and heart to share in his unflinching and compassionate attention to the weave of world and words in which we all live. You go back from these poems into your own life alert and alive to so much that you might otherwise have missed"- Malcolm Guite (author of Mariner: A Voyage with Samuel Taylor Coleridge)
