"In Australia, reviewers of poetry and its linguistic acquisitions often re-define the limits of the cultural imaginary when they view writing as a possible form of literary transgression. In so doing, they fail to reconcile with a white Australian fantasy that has overshadowed the voices of a past that have not, as yet, been given a chance to negotiate our cultural futures." (p. 30)
