  1. Thank you again dear Aria for your precious time and such well informed literary attentions. Once again your sharp critical faculties and insightful perceptions, not least the way you organise your exposition to bring key themes to the fore, allows you to shed light on my work quite like no other. You are truly such a precisely honed jewel in the firmament of literature whose time will surely come. With much gratitude and respect…

  2. Dear Aria, I’ve attempted to login my review. However, we’re experiencing meltdown, life has gone beyond a joke. Our environment has deteriorated, racism is running high. The car has been attacked. We’re condemned for being English, Loving kindness

  3. Aria Ligi’s review of New Poetry shows how brilliant an interpreter of poetry she is. She taps into the deepest vein of Hastie’s Romantic-Era-inspired verse, providing the laymen a way to mine what is most precious. She begins at the surface descending with surety through a myriad of layers toward the pith festooning Hastie’s poetic imagination. As many composers of the late 18th and 19th centuries realized, beauty at its most profound level is often associated with the deepest sadness. Ligi’s read of Hastie’s collection, New Poetry, validates the truth in this. Bravo Aria Ligi! Bravo Scott Hastie! J.
