Works about this Work

[Review Essay] Australian Poetry Peter Kenneally , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: The Weekend Australian , 7 January 2017; (p. 16)
'Local in scale, domestic in setting, Diane Fahey’s A House by the River (Puncher & Wattmann, 93pp, $25) is nonetheless epic and monumental in its almost geological study of grief: prospective, overwhelmingly present and fading into what becomes normal life. The book covers a period of 11 years or so: six spent as carer for her mother in the family home at Barwon Heads, Victoria, and the five after her mother’s death, grieving, surviving, reconciling.' (Introduction)
'Fragments' by Antigone Kefala and 'A House by the River' by Diane Fahey Gig Ryan , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , June-July no. 392 2017;
'Antigone Kefala’s Fragments, her fifth book of poems and first since Absence: New and selected poems (1992), is often menaced by the past, like her first collection, The Alien (1973). Here too are some subtly demolishing portraits, as well as buoyant poems such as ‘Metro Cellist’ and the slightly brooding ‘Summer at Derveni’: ‘Afternoon heat / empty of voices / on the foil surface / heads drifting / like heavy ornaments.’ While early work transmuted the impact of her migrations from Romania to Greece to New Zealand to Australia into a pervasive sense of loss, these new poems allude to, rather than relate, such journeys that pass through languages and decades: ‘When they came back / their eyes were scorched / their hands like open wounds / the road, they said, / nothing but fire / no coolness / as they were promised / in the fables’ (‘Pilgrims’ Tales’).'
