Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this inspired and carefully constructed epic poem, well-regarded Australian poet Kinsella (Peripheral Light) pays homage to the country's western wheat-belt landscape. Reminiscent of Philip Sidney's classic pastoral, "Arcadia," the poem teems with images of the region's unspoiled natural beauty juxtaposed against countless intrusions by humans, such as pesticides, soil erosion, and the disappearance of native peoples. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
