In Gold, George Elliott Clarke strives to enact Robinson Jeffers's assertion that "Beauty ... Is the sole business of poetry." Whether it be in the whiskey-hue of skin or the metal of the love in one's heart, the poems in Gold riff on the colour's cultural and poetic properties, joining Blue, Black, and Redas the fourth volume in Clarke's series of 'colouring' books.
