"The testimony of Sue Clifford engages the jury with what the figure means to individuals and to local people. She begins her statement by expressing why the giant is so important to her personally and to the people of the town. She talks about the persistence of the giant and how he characterises the town as the ‘Giants domain’... Three poets, James Turner, Sandra Tappenden and Jan Farquharson, all of whom have contributed one poem to the chapter (are introduced)."
