David Ades' luminous and honest collection, Afloat in Light, is chiefly a celebration of fatherhood and of paying attention, utilising Simone Weil's notion that 'attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity'. The collection extends to existence and loss, and a discourse on motive and meaning. Maps and moral compass are never far away in such explorations and like all good navigators Ades consults the moon and the stars to guide him through emotional terrain that crosses the globe via Australia, India and the United States. Poems about connection and love - familial, intimate, parental and friendship - hold their weight of history via scar tissue and heritage to allow 'a vast and full space to fill the maps of our lives'. Afloat in Light delicately balances that most crucial aspect of life - of how the ordinary is anything but. Ades is a poet that fully harnesses the verve of small miracles.--Libby Hart ***David Ades is a Pushcart Prize nominated poet. In 2014, he was awarded the inaugural University of Canberra Vice-Chancellor's International Poetry Prize and was also shortlisted for the Newcastle Poetry Prize. He has since been a finalist in the Dora and Alexander Raynes Poetry Competition and been Highly Commended in the Bruce Dawe National Poetry Prize. (Series: UWAP Poetry) [Subject: Poetry]
