A stunning new collection by one of Australia’s most celebrated poets.
The Fremantle Press Anthology of Western Australian Poetry is a comprehensive survey of the state’s poets from the 19th century to today.
This collection from John Kinsella takes its title from a poem of the same name. In the metaphor of the sack tumbling downstream with its cargo of drowned kittens lie layers of use, meaning and representation: love, cruelty, the pastoral, colonisation, landscape and identity.
This is a book of hope and redemption that nonetheless faces up to the terrors and traumas in all of us, terrors and traumas we play out on the world, often unwittingly.
Fast, Loose Beginnings is a racy anecdotal memoir of John Kinsella's meetings with the great and colourful men and women of poetry.
