AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Winner of the 2015 Thomas Shapcott Prize for Poetry trumpeting through blood &bone the glasshouse's yellow stars Glasshouses is an inventive, incandescent collection by one of Australia's most talented new poets. Drawing on a number of complex techniques, Stuart Barnes illuminates both city and coastal life, with allusions to classical and contemporary culture. Replete with extraordinary imagery, the poems maintain a beautiful accessibility and coherence despite their continually twisting, even disjointed figures.' (Publication summary)

    Merrily, merrily shall I live now

— Appears in: StylusLit , March no. 1 2017;
'Stuart Barnes’s Glasshouses is poetry set to an almost self-consciously cool soundtrack of throwback hits and B-sides by The Cure, Pulp, Suede, L7, The Stranglers, My Friend the Chocolate Cake, and Antony and the Johnsons. Throw in some late-80s Australian pop courtesy of Kylie Minogue and the Chantoozies and you have an idea of the eclectic mix-tape mash-up that was the winner of the 2015 Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize.'
