AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A chapbook of fifteen poems, Kevin Brophy’s Misericordia is part of a multi-form artistic response to the Jubilee of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis in 2016. The accompanying DVD records a performance of music, text, Brophy’s poems, and The Faces of Mercy, a tryptych by painter Niké Arrighi Borghese. Michael Campbell’s performance text provides a context for Brophy’s poems by selecting phrases from the Psalms and Pope Francis, the whole set to music by composer George Palmer, and performed by St Mary’s Cathedral Choir, Sydney. The performance is divided into three segments: Despair, Desolation; Pardon, Hope; Mercy, Love.' (Introduction)

    'Recently, in the Runaway Bay newsagency (north of Surfers Paradise), my eye was attracted by a sign on one of the shelves: it said ‘Women’s Interest’. Below it, six magazines – all of them to do with creative writing: The Writer (US), The Writer’s Chronicle (US), Writer’s Digest (US), Writers’ Forum (UK), Writing Magazine (UK) and Literary Review (UK). They cost me a total of $92.16 . ' (Nigel Krauth, Editorial introduction)
