Summary note:
In his new collection of poems, Dick Davis, the acclaimed author of Belonging, addresses themes that he has long worked with-travel, the experience of being a stranger, the clash of cultures, the vagaries of love, the pleasures and epiphanies of meaning that art allows us. But A Trick of Sunlight introduces a new theme that revolves around the idea of happiness-is it possible, must it be illusory, is its fleetingness an essential part of its nature so that disillusion is inevitable? Many of the poems are shaded by the poet's awareness of growing older, and by the ways that this both shuts do.
