Works about this Work

Under the Mountains and Beside a Creek : Robert Gray and the Shepherding of Antipodean Being Mark Tredinnick , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Littoral Zone : Australian Contexts and Their Writers 2007; (p. 123-143)
This chapter explores the agricultural and literary metaphors of pastoralism; it takes a traditional ecocritical approach, focussing on how the land has affected the poet and his writing. In Australia, whose economy has so long depended on the pastoral industry, there has developed a different kind of pastoral poetry, exemplified by the poetry of Robert Gray. Drawing on his experience of the North Coat of New South Wales, Grays poetry has matured as he has become an exemplar of what Martin Heidegger terms the 'shepherd of being'. from The Littoral Zone.
