Notes

  • Epigraph: On a day of few shadows / dark and light as cloud / the house by water / still as a bird / listens / till people / come driving their kids / along the dirt road / all sat among stacks of coke-cans / and raucous in yellow water-wings - from Judith Rodriguez's 'Witch Heart'.
  • Other formats: Also braille and sound recording.

Works about this Work

Multicultural Experience in the Poems of Judith Rodriguez and Inez Baranay's Neem Dreams Smita Agarwal , 2006 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australia and India : Interconnections : Identity, Representation, Belonging 2006; (p. 182-192)
Smita Agarwal examines Inez Baranay's Neem Dreams and a range of poems from Judith Rodriguez's House by the Water: New and Selected Poems. Agarwal concludes: 'Between the two texts under consideration in this paper, the reader discerns multiculturalism's literary journey in a technologically advancing, globalised world. Whereas in the Rodriguez poems ... the explorations are tentative and self-reflexive, Baranay's novel is strident in its approach, with an emphasis on contemporary diversity and its thrust on the idea of other nations and cultures being able to contribute their experience on an equal footing to our collective understanding of a globalised society.'
