Pauline Stainer is a poet 'working at the margins of the sacred', conveying sensations 'with an economy of means that is breathtaking… her poems are not merely artefacts, they have an organic life of their own' (John Burnside). The Lady & the Hare brings together poetry of rare luminosity from Pauline Stainer's five previous books, together with new poems, all inhabiting an imaginative borderland inspired by her 'visceral Muse'. 'Over the past 20 years, Pauline Stainer has all but perfected the art of illumination without demystification, in search of what she calls “the divining shiver”, a phrase that can only gesture towards the combination of physical immediacy and numinous wonder that her marvellous poems possess… Stroke by stroke, apprehension by apprehension, Stainer is building a unique and extraordinary body of work' -Frances Leviston, Guardian.
