Abstract:

"Immaculately yet organically structured, Rachel Richardson's 'Hundred-Year Wave' dives and sails and swims from the cosmic to the personal, accounting for the epical, sublime and tragic, and the lyrical, hymnal and elegiac. The sea is the book's domain and the source of energy, its grief and soalce; and in wave after wave of remarkable poetry bearing wit and grit and tenderness, it heralds the arrival of a poet of great poise and prodigious lyrical gifts."
