Adelaide:Wakefield Press,2009Z16866642009anthology criticism poetry Beaches are places of contact, play, confrontation and friction: first comers always arrive on a beach. After Europeans moved into the Antipodes, the coast was the first frontier to be defined. Flinders’ circumnavigation in 1802 had mapped ‘Australia’, revealing the land as ‘girt by sea’, as the national anthem continues to remind us. All kinds of ideas about the coast, beaches, sea changes, holiday places and islands swirl and eddy in this unique collection of writing.
