'Alive, passionate and on the move - these poems range through worlds of wide reading, inner and outer journeying, through both the historic and the personal past and present, the fleshly and the vegetal. Always alert to "terrible Aphrodite" in their swing between blazon and contreblazon, they make "pauses in transit" with great precision of image and feeling. Subtle and confronting at the same time, these are the fruits of a startling talent.' - Tracy Ryan, poet, winner of Western Australian Premier's Book Award
'A superb poetic exploitation of the intersections between language, silence and the ineffable. Mags Webster explores proximities and propinquities with devastating intimacy. Nothing to Declare is brilliantly ironic, smuggling nothing and everything across ever shifting borders. ' - Cassandra Atherton, prose-poet, author of Exhumed
