Notes

  • Epigraph: By looking into a box through a little hole one might see great plains and an immense expanse of sea spread out till the eye lost itself in the distance. Learned and unlearned agree that these images were not like natural things but like nature itself. These demonstrations, as he called them, took place by night and day. In the former, you saw Orion, Arcturus, the Pleiades, and other shining stars, and the moon rising above high mountains; by day you saw the blaze of dawn as Homer describes it. Certain Greeks, famous men and skilled seafarers, were astonished when he showed them, in his little world, a ship far out to sea. 'Now it labours in the tempest,' he said, 'But tomorrow you will find it in the harbour.' ANON, MID-FIFTEENTH CENTURY, Vita anonima

    'This anthology...is a negotiation of many spaces. That of poets and their work, the idea of "Australia", the idea of being "represented" in a different demographic (America), personal or textual issues with anthologiser, who else is being included (though none outside myself and the publishers have knowledge of this until publication). Vitally, whoat matters is the conversations that arise from the anthology going public, and how the poets and readers deal with this community that has been organically and artificially induced.'
