Adventurous, curious and moving, Christie's work braves abstraction and socio-political insights.
After Luce Cannon (Titus Books, 2007) and The Facts of Light (Vagabond Press, 2014), Carbon Shapes and Dark Matter is Christie's third collection of poetry.
Time after time lines come into focus, excoriating and yet lyrically beautiful. — Jack Ross
‘Stephanie Christie releases poetry until the “mind is out of its debt.” Political, vulnerable, arresting and inviting, the lines swerve from cultural statement to imaginative implosion, often simultaneously. We are given space, along with a gently addressed “you”, to attend to the fracturable words of our ecological and bodily conditions. Dread was never so lovely.’ — Lisa Samuels
