Suzanne Edgar / Catching the Light

Poetry
  • Suzanne Edgar / Catching the Light
Catching the Light is Suzanne Edgar’s fourth collection of poetry. In it, this ‘intelligent, inventive and gifted poet continues her daring discoveries and explorations’ (Les Murray) of both the light and the darker sides of life. When reviewing The Love Procession (2012), the late Peter Pierce praised Edgar’s `intense, melodious, carefully crafted, rewarding performance’ (Canberra Times, 2013). In the American magazine Antipodes (2014), John Beston’s overview of her poetry concluded, ‘her most important contribution to Australian literature and to world literature in general lies in her love poetry…her books belong alongside the outstanding women poets…in Australia: Judith Wright, Gwen Harwood and Rosemary Dobson’. Readers of Catching the Light will not be disappointed.
‘Edgar’s poems are clear, accessible…and balanced either by lovely rhymes that structure the early poems or by syllabic rhythms where rhyme is not needed to make the poetry work.’ - Quadrant
‘…those who have enjoyed Edgar in the past will encounter in Catching the Light the same eye for the lovely, the same enraptured gaze of love, that has imbued and illuminated her previous work.’ - Canberra Times
