Author: Robyn Sarah
Publisher: Cormorant Books (1987)
Robyn Sarah's poetry has been singled out for its "tone, its flawless cadence, an imagination rooted in natural things" (University of Toronto Quarterly); for its "musicality: the masterly play of syntax and musical pattern..." (Poetry Canada Review); and for its "play of pure energy" (Margaret Avison).
Becoming Light will surprise and delight readers. There is experiment but no straining for effect; energy, bu always a sense of measure as Robyn Sarah lets familiar landscapes, so carefully observed and painstakingly drawn, open perceptual doors into the human heart.
