AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Unhoused is the first collection of poetry by West Australian poet Chris Palazzolo. Strange, beautiful and inventive, these 56 poems have been a work in progress for more than two decades and tear apart the concept of artistic alienation, in which the familiar streets and houses become extraordinary through the poet’s eyes.

Unhoused is a play on the German word ‘Unheimlich’, translated literally as ‘un-homed’, ‘un-familiar’ or ‘uncanny’. These poems guide us from a pub to a school, from a playroom to a row of houses, from a busy freeway to a beautiful and imaginary Utopia. [Publisher's blurb]
