Rita Kelly’s poetry has been described as literate and ironic, full of sympathy and humour.

“Rita Kelly's poetry often touches on themes of brutality and tenderness in relations between family members as well as the range of emotions between lovers ... she writes of the demands of loving and the loss of the beloved. She uses to great effect the resources and the resonances of the elegiac tradition.

She is aware of death's shadow and she is an elegist of considerable powers.” - Joseph Heininger “Rita Kelly has poems of many kinds, some to make your heart thump and bring tears to your eyes, powerful poems indeed.” - Books Ireland “Rita Kelly is a love-poet of great lyric power and beauty, but her range is much wider than that.

Her startling capacity to transmute brutal experience into universal significance could hardly be better exemplified.” - Máire Mhac an tSaoi
