— Appears in: The Poetic Eye : Occasional Writings 1982-2012 2016; (p. 302-305)
'The Garden of Gethsemane aptly conveys a predominant mood the latest collection of poems by Mudrooroo (formerly Mudrooroo Narogin and earlier, Colin Johnson).— Mudrooroo's book titles, like his name changes, chart the vagaries of his concerns with perception and Identity. His superb first novels brought him to notice, even fame. Wildcat Falling and Dr Wooreddy's Prescription for Enduring the Ending of the World respectively chronicle contemporary times and the period of European contact in Tasmania.' (Introduction)
