Poetry. "Written over a span of six years, the poems of Brian Lucas's LIGHT HOUSE operate in what musician Brian Eno calls 'the long now,' a vast span of human time which redraws the lines of social priorities, away from the pathological hyperactivity of a market-driven attention span toward compassion and long horizons...a critical retuning of the ear, mind and heart."—Brian Strang
"Brian Lucas's first book is also the document of an exilic voice, original in it's wandering, a book composed of spectral coils, knots, and spirals, a book of arabesque (that perfect synthesis of irony and enthusiasm), whose language is limitlessly defined as 'an intentional science of ecstasy beyond the decay.'"—Andrew Joron
