Haunted Rooms: a review of Lisa Gorton’s Hotel Hyperion

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Memory, imagination, dreaming, invention and protean makings: such preoccupations are at the heart of Lisa Gorton’s new poetry collection, Hotel Hyperion. This relatively short and condensed book returns again and again – one is tempted to say, obsessively – to related tropes and imagery: weather, mirrors, rooms, crystals, hauntings and strange effects of light. It consistently defamiliarises the familiar until one might believe that the unfamiliar provides the clearest lens for viewing the world
