‘There’s a clarity about Claire Dyer’s poems that make them immediately attractive: their surfaces gleam and glitter. What makes them even more exceptional is the way this freshness connects to an underlying sense of the mystery and pathos of things – so that delight and sadness are always seen as inseparable. Which they are.’
‘Claire Dyer’s houses, rooms, shadowy corridors, and ghosts in vanished walls take flight in a thousand and one tales to dazzle and beguile against the advent of inevitable daylight: this trove of rediscovered and reinvented places, myths and pasts offers, in crafted, focused poems, a coherent vision of a constantly shifting world.’
