Solving time: 14 mins
The eight answers referred to in the preamble as being clued without definition are all poets, and as suggested by 8dn they appear in the ‘corners’ of the puzzle. Most of them at least rang a bell (though not EMPSON) so I didn’t find this too difficult although I struggled in the bottom left. Other than a couple of quibbles this was as expected from Pasquale, i.e. accurate clues with smooth surface readings.
