Abstract: Emma Lew's poetic covenant is with a poetics that has as its chief enterprise the music of diction, syntax and structure, a poetry whose message is often elusive, whose tones and pitches are constantly relocating and resettling in lines that resist explanation or sustained meaning. Her lines are always fleeing a centre, yet Beveridge found herself reading this book again and again, captivated by its beauty and music - not just captivated, but actively seduced - and this is a book whose prime intention is seduction.
