Praise for Even in the Dark by Rose Lucas

Rhythm and pattern follow with precision the rich tonality of Lucas’s visual and aural perceptions, delivered with just enough tension to allow a line to run free or a word to drop and hang alone where it dances, or stops.

AMANDA JOY, CORDITE

 

Lucas’s collection shines with a clear intelligence and keen observation of the everyday, landscape, place, art, love and grief. The poems, evocative and moving, also sit so lightly on the page.

LUCY DOUGAN, PHILIP MEAD AND MARCELLA POLAIN, MARY GILMORE AWARD JUDGES 2014

 

Lucas’s poems are composed of vivid bursts of colour.
