Travelling Through Light: A review of L Gorton, Press Release

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


In Lisa Gorton's first collection of poetry, somewhat ambiguously entitled press release, light, absence and doubt are major preoccupations. The poems speak of a weight of light, neon expectation, ruined cities overrun with light and all the falling light - in just the first of this volume's four sections, Light, for Gorton, is a sometimes mesmerizing and often overwhelming force. Among other things, it is the illumination of nostalgia, the halo of memory and the shining-out of presence.
