"Dark hyacinth crystals/ flutter behind my eyes" A. C. Evans reports in one poem from his new collection. This visionary quality is manifest throughout CHIMERA OBSCURA, which is divided into three parts: the first deals with the contemporary world of urban England; the second with personal transformation and initiation; the third with what Evans calls "The White Earth," a kind of spiritual void or hereafter of light and emptiness. In poem after poem, Evans merges the literary, the esoteric and a tad of science fiction into a sensory apparatus for picking up hidden messages from other worlds--worlds which may only be inside of us.--Thomas Willoch
