The suntrap in the title poem of Catherine Phil MacCarthy's long-awaited third collection is a magnifying glass through which a young girl is shown for the first time `how to burn'. Pervaded with the light of things caught and held, MacCarthy's finely crafted poems are perceptive and assured, moving deftly from the Aran Islands in Ireland's Galway Bay to Africa, from childhood to womanhood, and from innocence to experience.
