This collection of new poems - all composed over the last two years - is in many ways the culmination of a stunning career. The joy and responsibility of the poet is to focus on particulars within the universe, finding fragments of meaning that speak to the imagination. Ordinary things may reveal the extraordinary for those willing to take time to investigate and ponder. In this fresh collection of poems, Luci Shaw practices the art of seeing, and then writing what she sees, realizing that beauty is often focused in the Eye of the Beholder. Eye of the Beholder is meant to awaken in readers awareness of the extraordinary in the ordinary. They will find in this collection a focus for meditation and be excited into their own imaginative writing.   

Luci Shaw was born in London, England in 1928. A poet and essayist, since1986 she has been Writer in Residence at Regent College, Vancouver. Author of nearly forty books of poetry and creative non-fiction, her writing has appeared in numerous literary and religious journals. In 1913 she received the 10th annual Denise Levertov Award for Creative Writing from Seattle Pacific University. Her new collection, Eye of the Beholder, has just been released by Paraclete Press.
