Deborah Tyler-Bennett, reviewing for issue 15 of Under the Radar magazine (Nine Arches Press):
…the volume of poems that really blew me away this time was a slender pamphlet collection from Soundswrite Press, Jayne Stanton’s Beyond the Tune. I’d heard Stanton read a few times, but that did not prepare me for the sheer elegance and grace of her first volume.
On lines from Flown, and Suave and Debonair:
…her collection… has a musicality to it and rare lyricism
On first reading Beyond the Tune:
…a collection I’d return to time and again, as poems were economic and demonstrated that, in the poetic line, less really can mean more.
