Told in an age we can’t quite put our finger on, the poems in Lisa Ciccarello’s debut collection twist up from tales of witchcraft and the punishing morals of the Newgate Calendar. Vulnerable in the darkness as the dead watch behind salt-lined windows, we are led to explore a world of simple objects through a complex fog of cruelty and longing, strength and feebleness, folklore and familial traditions. Violence, love, death, jealousy, sex, and shadows fill the pages of At Night. If you seek comfort, you will find none here.
Now available as a mobile game! Night has fallen, and with it the dead have risen. In your remote house, you rely on magic to save you, salting the doorways and sills to keep them out. The longer the night goes on, the more the dead appear. Can you last until morning?
Incantatory, ruthless, and seductive, the poems in Ciccarello's debut roam a vast and timeless dark.
