"Fryatt is playful, with word-games, variations in line and length and dynamic outbreaks of rhyme giving the poems a kind of performance feel--but they also have a very strong page presence, their complexity in fact demanding movement through them at the pace and with the instant rewind of the eye. The reader is never allowed to get too settled, too comfortable--some fresh piece of invention, some unforeseen swerve, takes us into uneasy places."
--Rupert Loydell, Stride
"Experimenting with personas, translations, updates of medieval lyrics, visual accompaniments, dramatic interpretations, and other devices, Fryatt's performances seldom provide a single frame of reference. His multifarious interests and activities as poet, performer, writer, critic, academic, editor, publisher, and much else allow him a range that bestows his work a complex cultural meshwork. Entertainment comes shrouded in mystery and ambivalence, in uncertainties and depreciations, and an intellectual intensity that forms the backbone of his practice."
