"In Carvoeiro & Other Sequences has beautiful lyrical impact in its unusual and startling capacity for making language new in its arrangements and phrases. It also stood out through the sophisticated mastery of closed and open forms contained within it. The sonnet sequence is stunning. It is very difficult to write in this strict form with the naturalness of measured voice that Peter Oram achieves. This contrasts well against the looser, spacious and organic verse sequence 'Six Premature Ejaculations' that shows daring in both form and content."
- Bob Beagrie & Andy Willoughby
