Stan Rice's new book of poems is faithful to the strong, expressionist thrust of his most recent collection, Singing Yet: New and Selected Poems, published in 1992.
Fear Itself is equally arresting in the ominous visions it invokes - as though the book's title is to be taken literally, and the reader to be both engaged and disquieted.
