In Darkness Inside Out Rodney Pybus takes the reader on a series of excursions within real and imagined, beautiful and barbaric worlds. From Suffolk to Cape Town, from comedy to elegy, Pybus's poems explore the collusions of language and memory, the layerings of time and loss. A sequence set in the new South Africa closes this absorbing collection. Pybus shows that it is finally the work of the imagination that best turns darkness inside out.
'So pure and sinuous and all of a piece... Wonderfully graceful... words that seem natural and moving at the mind's speed -- like improvisation but everything spot on.'
