AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'She Woke & Rose is an obsession with interiors, an attempt to forge openings, to merge letters as means of release, slowly, slowly feels the longing, the fractures and the loss.

'‘When I state myself, as the Representative of the Verse – it does not mean – me – but a supposed person’, Emily Dickinson reveals. Here are multiple voices and personas rising and falling after their flowering periods.

'Alice Notley stresses that ‘words are one way to get at reality/poetry, what we’re in all the time’. When it comes to my reality and poetry, Inger Christensen’s fourth sequence in Alphabet simultaneously summarises and complicates it all for me:

doves exist, dreamers, and dolls;

killers exist, and doves, and doves;

haze, dioxin, and days; days

exist, days and death; and poems

exist; poems, days, death

'To make a stand and push it over, acknowledging the theatrics and violence of it all. I wish to confront rather than confess and as Felicity Plunkett writes it’s ‘when you pin and catch feeling in words / the tissue of its inconstancy / flakes away in your hands.’'

–Autumn Royal (Publication summary)

Notes

  • Dedication:

    For my Star

    to you I dedicate

    my vision, since on this blank surface

    you have cast enough light

    to make my thought 

    visible again. -Louise Gluck

  • Epigraph:

    We would not recognise an open rose

    as a rose

    because we come from a world 

    that cuts roses.

    -MTC Cronin

— Appears in: Long Paddock , vol. 76 no. 2 2016;
'A recent article in The Guardian profiled contemporary British artist Tracey Emin reassembling her most famous and award-winning work “My Bed” (1998) for an upcoming exhibition at the Tate Liverpool. The journalist observes her installation of the twenty-year old component parts and comments that Emin appears to be slightly squeamish about some of the ziplock-bagged items; the condoms, used tissues, the ’90s cigarette butts.'

A Whiff of Gunpowder Greg McLaren , 2016 single work review essay
— Appears in: Australian Poetry Journal , vol. 6 no. 2 2016; (p. 70-82)

'Just one of the many really interesting trails that thread through the seeming wilds of Australian poetry over the last two or so decades (cripes, has it been that long?) is the slow, constant morphing one of Cordite. Sydney poets Adrian Wiggins and Peter Minter, founders of Cordite Poetry and Poetics Review, launched their first issue in 1997. After five issues in a broadsheet format and an oscillating editorship that included Margaret Cronin and Jennifer Kremmer, the editorship was handed over in 2005 to David Prater, whose key innovation was to appoint guest editors for mini- and, later, entire issues.'
