'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.'

St Kilda:John Leonard Press,2011Z17959922011selected work poetry 'In Error, the idea of the mistake and fear of the mistake infiltrate large territories of emotion and thinking. Each of the five sections that make up this second book of poems by Elizabeth Campbell is a foray into doubt. Three are set in the voluble present, driven by the mysterious fragility of dailiness, through inheritance and childhood.
A delicate and idiosyncratic music plays throughout the book. The final sequence, 'A Mon Seul Desir,' is a riveting conclusion. Taking their starting point from the fifteenth century 'Lady and Unicorn' tapestries, these poems are as still and intensely coloured as the tapestries themselves - a passionate concentration on the nature and paradox of love.'
