Matinee Light

By Diana Hartog
Categories: Poetry
Paperback : 9780889102569, 80 pages, January 1998

Winner of the 1983 Pat Lowther Award

Hartog's first collection of poetry is a marvellous, luminous book from a writer with a sure wit, an abundance of feeling and a profound sense of the absurdity and rightness of life.

Hartog's perceptions of human nature are astute, intelligent and delightfully sympathetic to the human condition.'

– ? Kinesis

'The world of these poems is one of flickering but very sharp images, much like the moving pictures of her California childhood... the afternoons of matinee light.'

– ? Sharon Thesen, Line

'A beautifully constructed, disciplined first collection, filled with ironic wit, sensual vitality and subtlety.'
