  • Speaking to Susan Wyndham, Robert Adamson says, in relation to this poem: 'The landscape begins inside the head, in the great red dirt deserts of his [Stow's] imagination. There are some references to Stow's work as an anthropologist when he was a young man. I wanted to imitate those thought-weaving "brain-waves", using loose sprung rhythm, alliteration and internal rhyme, and then setting the poem in the present as well as the past to create a slightly surreal effect'. (Sydney Morning Herald, 'Spectrum' (12-13 June 2010): 35)
