Imprint: Cascade Books
"D.S. Martin's lovely suite of poems, written in response to the legacy of C.S. Lewis, will delight all lovers of Lewis's work as each new poem picks out and sheds light on different facets of Lewis's genius. . . . Amidst the long shelves of writing about Lewis, this slim volume will give more pleasure, show more insight, and win more friends than most."
--Malcolm Guite, author of Sounding the Seasons
"Don Martin's new poetry not only sheds new light on Lewis's life and vision, but enlarges, crystallizes, and embodies themes of import to Lewis, and to all of us as readers. Conspiracy of Light is an expansive, exploratory, and reflective invitation to fresh understandings of Lewis, who, a poet himself, might find in these imaginative re-creations a worthy tribute. Martin's penetrating yet accessible poems shine their points of light on Lewis and on life."
--Luci Shaw, winner of the 2013 Denise Levertov Award and author of Scape
"D.S. Martin has visited the heart o f the great Christian apologist and novelist, C.S. Lewis, and come back with a message of confidence. Here are poems that affirm the holiness of what is at hand and what lies ahead, poems that have the courage to live in light."
--Richard Greene, winner of the 2010 Governor General's Award for Poetry for Boxing the Compass
