Contumacyfront

Paul Hawkins has picked up Tom Raworth’s energised quirky verbal speed: his rich, fractured, spatialised language drives in and on. I like it.
Jeremy Reed; poet and writer

Oulipian divination meets Metro cut-up. The Crash crash-edited into resistance rhythms, cash-in-hand concrete typography, mapping the run-off and the rackets from Claremont Road to Cameron, then cleaned out with half a brick. What looked like a wall, turns out to be a wall of sound; or a barricade. Tip #366: Hawkins is unstoppable.
Tony White; novelist, writer and editor

Ruthlessly political and socially aware, but never without warmth and humour, Paul Hawkins’ poems do the all-too-rare thing of exploring the minutiae of places, and the people who live in them, with the right amount of formal diversity. Contumacy is a collection that matters.
Mark Burnhope; poet, activist and editor
