Editorial Reviews

Michael Byrne
Cooke also chooses his subject matter well. As a traveller, he takes the reader to interesting places they have most likely never been before. Then Cooke often treats his subject matter very intelligently. A winning combination. With Edge Music, Cooke has invited the reader to engage with a book that is assured, unrushed and without a hint of pretension.
Martin Harrison
He never loses the capacity to dream and meditate and, most powerfully, to tell things as they are. When most local he can draw his poetry from a wide awareness of modern poetry, not least from beyond the English language tradition. Far-ranging, he can return his poems to the immediate context of Australian voice and manner. Edge Music reveals a strong new poetic presence, a presence already very assured and one that is already offering a true moment of enrichment to Australian poetry.
Michael Farrell
The tones are urgent, good-humoured, and humble; the lines of a thoughtful and involved poet. Edge Music is spatially epic and technically diverse. In other words, a sexy country. Take it to bed.
Robert Gray
'A new world is a new mind', William Carlos Williams says. Aerating the mind is this book's project. The work looks exciting on the page, and it fulfils our expectations. It manages to reinstate lyrical beauty and negotiates between opacity and lucidity. His poems achieve the marvellous.
