Pauline Stainer is a poet "working at the margins of the sacred", conveying sensations "with an economy of means that is breathtaking" (John Burnside). The Lady & the Hare distils poetry of rare luminosity from her five previous books.

"Stainer writes sacred poetry for the scientific 21st Century. She is deeply English and draws from a wealth of sources: medieval lyrics, Eastern as well as Western art, Christian liturgy... chemistry and optics."
Anne Stevenson
