Exploring the Australian landscape, Anthony Lawrence’s 12th collection of poetry seizes the harshness of rural existence without overlooking the minute, beautiful details of the surrounding world. Filled with a rich lyrical vein, the poems meditate on all aspects of life from native birds and fish to deeply moving personal reflections of family life. Alternating between formality and free verse, this collection reveals an imagination fascinated with figurative language and the creation of poetry.
