The Shuttered Eye

Written by: Julia Copus

Julia Copus’s poems view some of the most turbulent moments in life through a sharp, clear lens: mature, uncomfortably honest, uncompromising — Maura Dooley

She slips skilfully in and out of figures from myth, fairytale, art and literature… Her poetry is deft, and seethes with anxiety and displacement. Where she will go after this accomplished debut is anyone’s guess — Maggie O’Farrell, Poetry London
