AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The nature of Sydney and the nature in Sydney, these are the foundations for much of Michael Aiken’s plain-speaking poetry, a verse that can be spare or lush as the city itself or as the city requires.

'Michael Aiken’s poems are minimalist in style and expansive in scope. He has the ability to infuse a poem with menace and tenderness, often within the same line, and he does so with a quiet yet potent confidence.' (Publication summary)

Notes

  • Dedication: For my parents Patrick and Christine, for telling me in my youth that I could repay all their kindness and support (financial and otherwise) by dedicating my first book to them. Debt settled.
