Lighting the Shadow: A Review by Jeff Lennon at The Rumpus / by Rachel Griffiths

"Griffiths speaks frankly of personal violation and the use of the body for all sorts of raw imagery and metaphor. Bodies are both blessed and oppressive. As much violence is done to them as beauty extracted from them. A series of prose poems in the first section all speak to the desires of women to break free of the bonds that hold them, the violence done to them by men and by society."  - Jeff Lennon,
