Works about this Work

The 'I' of My Poems : The Poet and the Poetic Self in David Brooks' Poetry Phillip A Ellis , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Explorations In Australian Poetry 2010; (p. 101-112)
'Phillip A. Ellis' essay 'studies how David Brooks has developed the use of a poetic self in his poetry. It sees some of its strategies that the poet uses with the poetic 'I', and also sees how the poetic 'I' becomes constructed as part of a universalised self, arising out of the details of the poet so that we understand more about that difference between the poet and the poetic 'I' than taking it as a self-evident, and unreflected truism.'
