    y White Camel Morgan Yasbincek , Melbourne : John Leonard Press , 2009 Z1673758 2009 selected work poetry

    'This third book is a radical departure in Morgan Yasbincek's poetry. A concentrated dialogue with the world around her, displayed in her first two books, gives way to poems that suggest aftermath and new beginning.

    Their contemplations occur in the spaces left after loss, where love and grief are 'kinds of home without settlement'. They summon up the pluck and rapture of childhood, and the wisdom of religions: Buddhist, Hindu, Judeo-Christian, and a resilient and matriarchial animism.

    The movement of voice here seems to rely on vacuum and echo for its definitions. The poems refract a spectrum of meanings, from inward directness, to inventive allegory. In the key poem 'gimel', the undulating gait of the white camel 'makes this direction into a future'. Yasbincek's own rhythms, as ever, are assured and light-syllabled.' (Publisher's blurb)

    y The Turnrow Anthology of Contemporary Australian Poetry John Kinsella (editor), Monroe : LA Desperation Press Turnrow Books , 2014 8049508 2014 anthology poetry

    'This anthology...is a negotiation of many spaces. That of poets and their work, the idea of "Australia", the idea of being "represented" in a different demographic (America), personal or textual issues with anthologiser, who else is being included (though none outside myself and the publishers have knowledge of this until publication). Vitally, whoat matters is the conversations that arise from the anthology going public, and how the poets and readers deal with this community that has been organically and artificially induced.' John Kinsella (Source: backcover)
