"Venright's genius (yes, genius!) is most evident in three poems ... 'Manta Ray Jack and the Crew of the Spooner' is a work of total virtuosity ... peerless in Canadian poetry. Indeed, the same may be said for Floors of Enduring Beauty as a whole."
—Alessandro Porco, Arc Poetry Magazine, Winter 2008
