Lighting the Shadow - Rachel Eliza Griffiths

Though elegant in her language, her lines tripping off the page seemingly effortlessly, every poem in Rachel Eliza Griffiths collection, Lighting the Shadow, is steeped in violent memory and calls for justice for all the forgotten dead who litter the landscape of our world. From all the black men and boys in America to women in Africa and India, Griffiths is both merciless and relentless in her quest for acknowledgement of those who were innocent of any crime and yet were punished by merely existing. Brilliant, gut-wrenching and important, Lighting the Shadow is not an easy book to get through but it is a vitally important read for everyone.
