Opal Darkness



Black Lace - the leading erotic imprint for women

Justly celebrated for his visionary intelligence, fresh eye and lyrical skill, Peter Redgrove is a uniquely gifted poet at the heights of his powers. His new collection, ASSEMBLING A GHOST is a testament to his inclusive, affirming imagination: a book of thresholds -doorways, windows, mirrors, wellshafts - opening into hidden rooms, mansions of the mind. Taking the natural world and re-inventing it, rendering the human condition with the fierce clarity and logic of a dream, Redgrove's poems electrify and astonish. From a summer cycle ride in Esher to the treatment of rust ('the red books that open without cease everywhere') from porridge to insects (flies like lacquered idol'), from leather goods to shell suits ('a shriek generated against Nature'), Peter Redgrove makes us look again at our world - and we come away changed.
