From Gascoigne's Egg: Stanza  


‘This is an elegant limited edition reprinting of a long poem from the Swansea Review. Greening adopts George Gascoigne, the important early Elizabethan writer, as narrator. There still stand two huge airship sheds at Cardington in Bedfordshire, surreal buildings from the long-ago which hatched the airships R100 and R101... The land belonged to the Gascoigne family and Greening sets up a construction of rigged parallels as complex as the airframes of the ill-considered giants... It is an allusive poem, a fantastical and surprising achievement.’
