Poetry. "NIGHT LIGHTS is a volume of exquisitely painterly skyscapes, waterscapes, city and mountainscapes.set onto the page in language rich and precise. At the same time: the mind, meditative, scrupulous, thinking..As Augustine's poems approach a world at war, she asks, 'Is awareness madness?' I think not, but I find myself rather madly in love with this poet's eye, her music, her awareness" --Alice Ostriker. "Elegiac, lyrical, and passionately connected to the flow and ebb of the phenomenal world, NIGHTLIGHTS uplifts our poetry gaze. 'Now just this: the earth not in the sun's way/ A perfect ivory mirror reflects the eye/opening/'...Jane Augustine's investigative eye is to be trusted and applauded"--Anne Waldman.
