"Coal and Roses" allows the poet space to both research and to create, looking simultaneously to the past and to her hopes for an uncertain, metaphysical future.

Included are a series of 21 glosas, borrowing from the work of Ted Hughes, John Ashbery and Thom Gunn, amongst others. A masterful display of linguistic dexterity, Page assimilates the pervasive complexity and the abundance of tradition that co-exist in the world of literature.

I really delighted in the form and the creativity required to make good use of it. I most liked the poems "Age of gold", "Each mortal thing", "Your slightest look", "The blue guitar" (an extraordinary work... profound... mystical... !!), "Soft travellers", "My chosen landscape", and "No exit".
