Notes

  • Author's note: Apart from obvious sources, these poems owe much to the recent Sidney Nolan Retrospective at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and a revisit to the National Art Gallery, Canberra. The Diaries of Donald Friend, vol.2, edited by Paul Hetherington, National Library of Australia, also suggested some material. (p.15)
