In Scape, her newest volume of poetry, Luci Shaw uses the symbol of a scape (variously defined as a plant stem growing up from the ground, an architectural column, or the shaft of a feather) to tie together the themes in the collection. Each of these poems is freshly minted and vigorous, and many have already found their way into the pages of literary and religious magazines and journals. They illuminate the way Shaw sees her world as a continuum of physical and spiritual verities. Shaw received the 10th annual Denise Levertov Award in 2013 and this anthology confirms that it was richly deserved.
 
Luci Shaw is a widely known and published writer, essayist, and lecturer on art and faith. Born in the UK in 1928, she has lived in Australia and Canada and now makers her home in Bellingham with her husband John Hoyte. Since 1989, she has been writer in resident at Regent College, Vancouver. She is winner of the tenth annual Denise Levertov award for “sustained engagement in creative writing in the Judeo-Christian tradition.”
