AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Parts of Us holds in balance a quiet maturity with a vital energy. Ranging from sonnet sequences to long lyrical meditations, dramatic monologues to more confessional works, these poems are imbued with verve, curiosity and elegant inquiry. The collection is marked by an almost self-elegiac strain, an unflinching imagining of on''s own death, and a sense too of love fading, which serves as a brave and powerful corrective to the idealisation of some love poetry written by men about women. In the light of these themes, the lively "Adelaide Lunch Sonnets" acquire additional weight and resonance.' (From the publisher's website.)
