1 2 y separately published work icon Activist Poetics : Anarchy in the Avon Valley John Kinsella , Liverpool : Liverpool University Press , 2010 Z1823431 2010 single work criticism 'John Kinsella is known internationally as the acclaimed author of more than thirty books of poetry and prose, but in tandem with - and often directly through - his creative and critical work, Kinsella is also a prominent activist. In this important collection of essays the vegan anarchist pacifist poet claims that poetry can act as a vital form of resistance to a variety of social and ethical ills, in particular ecological damage and abuse. Kinsella builds on his earlier notion of 'linguistic disobedience' evolving out of civil disobedience, and critiques the figurative qualities of his poems in a context of resistance. The book includes explorations of anarchism, veganism, pacifism, and ecological poetics. For Kinsella all poetry is political and can be a call to action.' (Publisher's blurb)

1 6 y separately published work icon Beautiful Waste : Poems by David McComb David McComb , Chris Coughran (editor), Niall Lucy (editor), North Fremantle : Fremantle Press , 2009 Z1644163 2009 selected work poetry (taught in 2 units)

'When David McComb died in 1999 at the age of 36, he left behind an extraordinary body of work, notably the songs and albums he recorded with Australian post-punk group The Triffids. The fact that McComb also wrote poetry from an early age - much of it collected here for the first time - will come as no surprise to admirers of the songwriter's powerfully evocative lyrics.

Introduced by fellow Western Australian writer John Kinsella, the poems in this book will delight fans of popular music and contemporary poetry alike. Beautiful Waste illuminates a hitherto neglected aspect of McComb's brilliance.' (Publisher's blurb)
