Poetry. "Peter Dent's writing persuades the reader to abandon the illusion of thoughts as a sequence, and to rest the attention, in stillness, on each individual moment that the world brings to focus. The clarity of this writing arises from the delicate attention given to form and light in order to capture its essence briefly and completely, with the observer himself then introduced as though gently lowered into the poem without disturbing the contents. Short lines and flexible syntax give these poems an uncluttered quality and a sense of deeply-held curiosity about surfaces, the light that transforms them, and the way the watching mind is made still"--Iron.
