Summary Eurydice Speaks is a linked sonnet series echoing voices that emerge from the Underworld. A contemporary Eurydice uses the power of language to process her constraints and losses, reflected in strategies of transformation which reveal the dynamic between iteration and change. Fragments of being and transitory insights, like broken pieces of mirror within the architecture of the sonnet, reflect and distort, to deepen, intensify and reinforce connectivity. Eurydice Speaks illustrates the evocative, associative and allusive power in the methods of poetry: to know and be known, to feel and be felt, to gather and cohere
Notes Claire Gaskin is the author of three books of poetry: Paperweight, A Snail in the Ear of the Buddha, and A Bud, which was shortlisted for the John Bray SA Festival Award for Literature in 2008. Her poetry has also been anthologised in Australian Poetry, Motherlode, Australian Love Poems, and Best Australian Poems
