Vagabond Press started with the Rare Object Series in July 1999, publishing two small chapbooks of poetry by David Brooks and Nick Riemer. More than a decade later the series is still going strong and has emerged as an iconic publishing venture in Australian poetry, bringing together the key emerging and established Australian poets at the turn into the twenty-first century, and being remarkable for the quality of the work published and the design and production values. Originally based on a combination of the design values of French press Fata Morgana and Neil Astley's beautiful Poetical Histories series, the Rare Objects are remarkable for the cover art produced by Kay Orchison, exquisitely conceived and designed in response to each poet's work. The chapbooks are printed in limited editions of 100 copies, signed and numbered by the author. ...' (Vagabond Press website) Number in series: 17/20

Works about this Work

Religion, Eroticism and Being's Continuity : A Reading of Kevin Heart in the Light of Bataille's Theory Zhang Shaoyang , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 26 no. 1 2012; (p. 79-85)
'It is well known that Australian poet Kevin Hart is interested in the relationship of theology and deconstruction, and that he is sympathetic to theorists such as Emmanuel Levinas, Maurice Blanchot and Jacques Derrida, as well as to the dual tradition of theology (positive and negative). However, it seems to have gone unnoticed that Hart's poetry is also close to the thinking of Georges Battaille. To testify to this point, this essay explores how Hart's writing is resonant with Bataille's theory on religion and eroticism, and demonstrates, in the meantime, the ways of obtaining intimacy with the deity,or continuity of being, by reading two of his major poems, 'The Hall' (Hart, Flame Tree 194-4) and 'Madonna' (195-200), with some references to Bataille's works, including The Impossible, Story of the Eye, and L'ABBE C.)'
