Carol Rumens has reviewed William Wootten’s debut collection You Have a Visitor in the latest issue of The Poetry Review (106:2, Summer 2016).
“Some poems are song-like without being songs. Wootten has made an art of the refrain, that time stopping device which can sometimes be heart-stopping, playing variations on the repetition, nudging it into a semblance of narrative development without erasing the pattern. Poetry almost becomes memory at such points.”
