Martin Reyto's diverse heritage is revealed in poems which, while contemporary in image and idiom, range into unfamiliar modes of vision, thought, and musicality. An unexpected array of freaks, beasts, prisoners, heroes, lovers, soldiers, fools, and ...
other human and inhuman oddities inhabit Reyto's verse like the gargoyles and statues in a Gothic cathedral. Amidst landscapes that recall the paintings of Bosch and Breughel stands the mysterious figure of the poet as conjuror, pulling mammoths out of extinction into the light of consciousness and inhabiting that archetype of our time, the two-headed man.
