Description - First Light by Kate Fagan
The poems in First Light are both playful and intensely personal, combining an interest in language and the sound of words, with a sensual engagement with the world and the experiences of family life. Some poems are created by `sampling' from other writers; others test the tipping point between poetry and prose in small narrative `prayers', or stage a dialogue in love letters. Above all, this is a collection which explores the musicality of language, offering an important contribution to the technical range of Australian poetry, and its lyric possibilities.
