Inhaltsangabe: "For years Isabel Nathaniel has been winning prizes for her poems, and now she has produced a first book which will be prized for its confident voice and consummate skill. In poem after poem she entwines high culture and eros, autobiography and history, the ghostly and the lively. While her poems are celebratory, there also is tragedy--but her art transcends sorrow in affirmative works that are both clear and true." --Robert Phillips
"With the aura of sacred ritual, Isabel Nathaniel's The Dominion of Lights enacts loving transformations in the fullness of a beautiful privacy. She writes as Degas said he painted--not to show us the things she saw, but the things that will make us see what she saw so deeply. Her service is completed with such a powerfully elevating humility and grace, it effects the promise of fine wine, to make the higher spirit within us shimmer." --Jack Myers
"How difficult it is to entice the restive heart to the comforts of domesticity, and to mortgage it to the losses we thereby brave! Isabel Nathaniel's The Dominion of Lights is no narrative, and some of its most wrenching moments (the death of a son) happen offstage, but her quiet, authoritative poems embody, one by shapely one, the act of continuous imagination that embraces the wildness and terror of domestic life as well as its balms." --William Matthews
