It has been that Pauline Stainer is a poet working at the margins of the sacred, conveying sensations with economy of means that is breathtaking - all of which aptly applies to this brilliant new collection. She draws from a wealth of sources, including medieval lyrics, Eastern and Western art, and Christian liturgy. In The Wound Dresser's Dream, her challenging fourth collection, several sequences include elegies, and explorations of light and music. The title poem is drawn from Keats's fancy to become a ship's surgeon.
