The dark attunes our eyes to detail the light can sometimes conceal; similarly, Colette Bryces new poems are slant tellings that reveal strange and true reflections. Using a wide range of imaginative strategies, Bryce examines the ways in which time is held, space enclosed and a life framed and given meaning: a face in a broken mirror, a spider trapped under a glass, or a stolen kiss in a car-wash. Bryces two previous prize-winning collections were widely admired for their marvellously seductive music and their speed of thought; Self-Portrait in the Dark widens and deepens the poets scope, and is her most emotionally compelling collection to date. Praise for The Full Indian Rope Trick [Bryces] poems, sensitive as the needle that registers some distant earth tremor, are delicately poised . . . Bryces vision is questing, disquieting, dark . . . as she seeks out the truths of life and love that transform the human heart. This is a confident, complex, subversive collection that shows us the magic by which one becomes a mature poet The Times
