Pauline Stainer is a poet working at the margins of the sacred', conveying sensations with an economy of means that is breathtaking
her poems are not merely artefacts, they have an organic life of their own' (John Burnside). As in all her books, the luminous poems of her eighth collection Tiger Facing the Mist are minimal but highly charged with presences and hauntings, sensing the spirit incarnate in every part of the living world. 'Over the past 20 years, Pauline Stainer has all but perfected the art of illumination without demystification, in search of what she calls "the divining shiver", a phrase that can only gesture towards the combination of physical immediacy and numinous wonder that her marvellous poems possess
Stroke by stroke, apprehension by apprehension, Stainer is building a unique and extraordinary body of work' Frances Leviston, Guardian.
