Green Writers Press brings back into print the acclaimed Weight of Light, by Su Smallen, which includes award-winning poems and the widely taught lyric essay â€śOn Poetry.â€ť Joyful and elegiac, Weight of Light widely embraces nature, art, and science. Alison Hawthorne Deming describes Weight of Light as â€śwork that beautifully marries attention and evanescenceâ€ť with â€śresonant clarity.â€ť Connie Wanek calls Weight of Light â€śambitious, bold, inventive, intelligent, and sensualâ€ť and Jim Moore adds â€śwonderfully faithful to the world.â€ť
