AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From well-known poets Charmaine Papertalk Green and John Kinsella comes a tete-a-tete that is powerful, thought provoking, challenging and unapologetic. Papertalk Green and Kinsella call into question what we think we know about our country, colonisation, land and identity. Each poem is part of a striking conversation that surrounds topics such as childhood, history, life, love, mining, death, respect and cultural diversity. This extraordinary publication weaves two differing lives and experiences together and rarely pauses for breath. Papertalk Green and Kinsella’s words traverse this land and reflect back to us all, our identity and how we got here.' (Publication summary)

'False Claims of Colonial Thieves weaves together two disparate voices, Charmaine Papertalk-Green and John Kinsella, in a demanding collection that reaffirms the troubling environmental era we are living through. Structurally, the book shifts between traditionally oppositional views – an Aboriginal woman and a white man. Neither dominates the narrative: instead, we witness their shared commitment to challenge the environmental direction Australia is spiralling towards. Their concerns take the form of protest.'  (Introduction)

'Yarning is a beautiful conversation / From that moment / That space / That time / Yarning puts us on common ground.
