'Greta Stoddart's At Home in the Dark is a powerful first collection that sheds light not only on the darkness of home but also reveals much that's unsettling about the further afield. With their clear, percussive rhythms and their dramatic poise and timing, these poems dare and lure the reader to follow her prescient, unflinching gaze.'
Praise for Greta Stoddart 'As a poet, Stoddart is not in the business of offering solutions; the closest she comes to doing so is obliquely, through the bright snap of the language in which she presents her dilemmas, the irresistible clarity of images so right they deliver an almost physical connection, joining poem and reader...This is a collection that thrives not on solutions, but on endless, boundless possibilities.'
Sarah Crown, The Guardian, 2008
