This is my conclusion after feasting upon each delicious morsel of his poetry. It is my belief that Victor Pearn s poetry will be considered to be among the finest works of poetry in both the Twentieth Century and our New Millennium. He has the unique gift of expressing in poetry what is otherwise inexpressible. His word pictures make you feel like you are there experiencing the things he describes so vividly. Victor also possesses the unique ability of being both tough minded and tender hearted. He is one of those rare individuals whose writings are both sweet and reasonable. His poetry reflects who he is today and where he has been, as he is a child of the Sixties and Seventies who has tasted both the bitter and the sweet and has come through those refining trials as a man who has lived what his poetry teaches. I am proud to commend Victor Pearn s poetry to all who are hungry and thirsty for a special literary feast.
