AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'John Kinsella is best known for poetry that is often characterised as anti-­pastoral: the ecological underpinnings, the rootedness in the wheat belt of Western Australia, the postmodern aesthetic awareness. Rather than the celebration of humanised nature, Kinsella’s poems deal with the exploitation of the land and its consequences as well as the often anti-romantic lives of those on the land. It’s a poetry of silos and heat, trail bikes, drought and death.' (Introduction)
