"This is not a quest for epiphany: it is a rigorous modus vivendi. Tom Beckett’s is a poetry which, in accompanying us in our questionings — more than this, in feeling with us throughout our errancies — is as much phenomenological inquiry as it is intimate emotive play. It is at once the voice inside our heads and those voices outside, which we love, but cannot understand. From out this space of inquiry and intimacy, Beckett’s work emerges as that poetic praxis most necessary to us in our time. It is a consciousness seeking answers to itself." — Nicholas Manning
