Among these outstanding writers is a growing number of Indigenous authors, whose voices are included here. Their stories - many of them previously untold in literature - deepen and expand our understanding of the experiences that comprise Australia's past, present, and future. Both the Indigenous and non-Indigenous authors in Where the Rivers Meet address their country's struggle to create a shared citizenship and sense of belonging. Some seek the key to this shared belonging in the creation of a more just relationship to the land and in issues of ownership. Others find clarity and rejuvenation in the country's harsh and beautiful wildness. Still others emphasize, in the words of Melissa Lucashenko, that we need to hear 'the small, quiet stories in a human mouth' in order to truly know this land and its people.' -- Publisher's website. 2006 pg. 163-164

    y Cumulus : Collected Poems Robert Gray , St Kilda : John Leonard Press , 2012 Z1893435 2012 selected work poetry 'This book is a landmark in Australian poetry. For Cumulus, Robert Gray has chosen all he wishes to retain from his eight volumes of poetry, some of it considerably and significantly revised. He has included here a new book, "Nameless Earth", not previously published in Australia.

    'Gray has been a daring and original experimenter in the free verse line, and also at times with traditional forms. Equally, his work is notable for its frequent, uncanny rightness in the creation of images. His thinking shows a remarkable fluency in both Eastern and Western philosophies (Gray has referred to himself as a Buddhist heretic). These are all modernist pathways, and this poetry negotiates them with a lucid, classical temper.

    'Most striking is an ever-alert immediacy—a perception and reflectiveness in the fluid moment. Whether through his sensuous language or his powerful engagement with ideas, Gray's poetry continually opens us to a fresh involvement with the physical world.' (From the publisher's website.)
