Beveridge’s poetry is remarkable for its attentiveness to the humble rituals of life, and to ordinary things and people. In its clarity, and its commitment to dignifying the smallest, the poorest, the most awkward or the most transient of beings, its finds in these a sanctity which resists degradation or impoverishment.

Her great strength is the verse portrait, and in detailing her unassuming subjects – the giraffe, the caterpillar, the reed-cutter, the saffron-picker, the beggar – she discovers a richness and a vitality in them which their appearance alone might not otherwise disclose. Underlying this awareness of the grace which moves in the accidentals of life (the “accidental grace” which is the title of her second collection), there is a sense of the unity of all things – her interest in Buddhism, and in the life of Siddhattha Gotama, springs from the same source.

The delicacy and clarity of her verse is achieved through rigorous discipline, and a masterly control of the small but cumulative effects of sound, and the slight changes in pace and rhythm which come from a subtle management of line length and caesura.
