Lumière by Sue Burge
In her debut pamphlet, Sue Burge has captured the very essence of a Parisian dream. A residency in Paris allowed Sue the time to immerse herself both in the culture and the history of film centred in the City of Light, a passion for the cinema which she brings to life in Lumière.
Throughout Lumière Sue displays a unique and authentic voice, weaving a rich tapestry of emotions and unveiling an unflinching perspective. This is a confident and immensely impressive collection with an underlying humanity that richly rewards the reader and leaves you wondering what she will do next.
Sue Burge is a poet and freelance creative writing and film studies tutor based in North Norfolk. Lumière was written during a residency in Paris. This residency allowed Sue to combine her three great passions – Paris, poetry and the cinema in order to create a unique poetic response to the city’s cinematic legacy.
