Quote #4

"WITHOUT DARKNESSE THERE CAN BE NO LIGHT." (12.19.12)

The Book of Moons uses some goofy spelling that makes "darkness" look like a fancy hair dye. But seriously, this quote from The Book of Moons is true. You can't have light without dark, just like you can't have tall without short or fat without thin. Or books without Shmoop.

Quote #5

"WHAT APPEARS DARKNESSE MAYE BE THE GREATEST LIGHT. WHAT APPEARS LIGHT MAYE BE THE GREATEST DARKNESS." (12.19.15)

Sometimes the line between good and evil isn't as defined as you'd think. How's that for deep?

Quote #6

"darkfire, lightdark / dark matter, what matters?" (2.4.8)

Lena's poetry shows her inner conflict between good and evil. She has no idea what she has within her—and at this point, does she even care?
