"An eye for the crucial detail and insight into the emotions underlying circumstance distinguises the poetry of Elizabeth Brewster. In these poems she ventures into the world of myth and legendary heroes, and finds personal meaning in the ancient tales of gods and fabled creatures. With the skilful blend of compassion and irony that is characteristic of her work, the poet describes her search for love in its various aspects: love between manand woman; spiritual kinship between friends and between poets; delight in the mystery of the cosmos and its infinite design". - from the dj.
