IN MY DAYS AND IN MY SLEEP
Rebecca Law's poems reflect her views as a practising Catholic while contemplating subjects ranging from nature and love to philosophy and social history. She captures elements of the Creation - flowers, animals, birds, trees - so their beauty can be brought to the ecstatic in accordance with the unity of the Trinity.
Rebecca Law writes admirably taut, focused poems in which no word is wasted. They are at once sensual and brimming with spiritual insight. These are poems that invite reading, re-reading and meditation."
- Professor Kevin Hart
Rebecca Law's poems have a clear-minded immediacy revealing rich, ever changing worlds of sacred sensuality. Paradoxically, her careful choice of words and descriptive phrases, with allusions to wind, silences, water, and how aspects of nature can echo human emotions, seem reminiscent of the ancient heart of Virgil's Georgics. Her poem 'Tendering the Ghostlight' is magical- a joy to read.
