Even in the Dark 2013 selected work poetry

'In a collection evoking luminescent images, poet Rose Lucas explores nature and beauty, love and travel. Even in the Dark contains delicate poems of the lives of women and the exquisite beauty contained in the act of observation. The entire lifespan is present here, in vitro to the final hours, developing and then ageing bodies captured in whisps of lovely images, images that also contain danger and risk. In this, her first volume of poetry, Lucas has distilled years of writing into an impressive selection.' (Publisher's blurb)
