Abstract
Anthony Lawrence's latest collection of poetry, "Skinned by Light: Poems 1989–2002", a revision of his "New and Selected" (1998), is a much tighter work than its predecessor - 121 as against 335 pages. While some may wonder why UQP has published another 'Selected' from Lawrence in the space of four years, the publication of his novel, "In the Half Light" (2000), justifies introducing Lawrence's poetry to a wider readership.
