ORBIS reflect its editor's devotion to a conventional sort of poetry with little sense of adventure. Editor Mike Shields' poetic sense is perhaps summed up in his editorial "Remaking the Language," where he wonders about the "typographical peculiarities" he sees in so many poems and asks "Why do poets who cleave to such oddities also abandon standard punctuation?" Despite its editor's middle of the road approach to poetry, ORBIS is very readable. Scads of poetry book reviews, magazine reviews, and general poetry scene news (mostly British) give it a comfortable, among friends feeling.--Thomas Willoch
