Night Journey, Paperback / softback Book

Night Journey Paperback / softback


In this new collection, Josephine Dickinson's poems move out towards the cosmos and inwards on a journey of transformation - the 'night journey' of the title.

Between the first poem's imagery of the moth chrysalis and the shape-shifting spells of the last, each poem or sequence has at its centre a movement towards epiphany.

The long central sequence of 'Elegies' follows the journey of a grief.

But the tone of this collection is ultimately ecstatic, its dominating influence one of light.

The poet questions the equation of 'night' with 'darkness'.

Night assumes instead the nature of a lover, host to dreams and what is beyond the ordinary senses.
