The Sunlit Zone: A Ground-Breaking Elegy That Stirs Up Emotions

The Sunlit Zone is a true masterpiece showing poetess talent for poetic rhythm and story-telling. Sunlit Zone was published by Five Islands Press in 2012 and is inspired by poetess Lisa Jacobson’s trip to the ocean. Struck by the ethereality of being underwater, she couldn’t contain herself and wrote more than initially planned. It got too big to be either a poem or short story thus became a rough verse novel.

The Sunlit Zone is the name of the topmost layer of the ocean in its true sense. Which makes it all the more relatable. If you have read ‘The Sunlit Zone’ you can tell its narrative flow and sense of depth and the words used are of high-quality. This historic elegy of love and loss stirs up so many emotions from start to the end.  A true masterpiece rarely found in the history of prose or narratives. The poetess talks of her experience using her sense of fantastic story-telling and makes it a reality in an impressive way.

Critically acclaimed and award-winning poet and fiction writer demonstrated her exceptional imaginative power in its full swing. It’s narrative sweep and family dynamic is admirable as well as shows her brilliance. Adrian Hyland, an award-winning Australian non-fiction and crime fiction writer, also praised her work. He said it combines the narrative drive of novel with pitch-perfect poetry. Then he went on and dubbed it as “A darkly futuristic vision shot through with bolts of light”. Further mentioning its characteristics, he said it’s Brilliant, poignant, and disconcerting.

Chris Wallace-Crabbe another Australian writer also pitched in saying, the verse novel is magical and irresistible. Australians are especially fond of saltwater and sea change and Jacobson’s novel only intensifies their feelings. He summed it up with, ‘romance mixed with science and brought to the ocean’.

The Sunlit Zone has won the 2014 Adelaide Festival John Bray Poetry Award. Other than that, it was nominated for four major national awards. These awards include, the 2013 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards, the 2013 Stella Prize, the 2012 Wesley Michel Wright Prize, and the 2009 Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards.
