Reviews

'Here is a magnificent poem of poems: a surging, truth-bound voyage that offers no easy purpose, acceptance, or ending.' - David Morley on the pamphlet of Notes on Water, in The Poetry Review (Autumn 2022)


'Dark, funny, wise, terrifying. She is searingly matter-of-fact about the most painful recesses of the human heart... She dances round every corner with a grace that many more seasoned writers would die for' - Jo Shapcott


'Dalton looks in the face of despair and tells its story with unnerving calm' - Siân Hughes, TES


'She seeks out the fractured minds and lives that live in darkness and reconstructs them with tenderness and skill' - Tracey Herd, Stand
