Works about this Work

The Pastures of Youth : An Uneven Poetic Memoir Aidan Coleman , 2021 single work review
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , April no. 430 2021; (p. 55)

— Review of Walk Like a Cow : A Rumination on Walking Brendan Ryan , 2005 single work autobiography
'‘The first forty years of life furnish the text, while the remaining thirty supply the commentary,’ Arthur Schopenhauer remarked in The Wisdom of Life and Counsels and Maxims. While the timespan is different, the proportions are similar. Brendan Ryan’s Walk Like a Cow, which focuses predominantly on the poet’s first twenty-five years, has been written over roughly two decades. The memoir features twenty-seven largely self-contained chapters and nine previously published poems, in a roughly chronological narrative.' (Introduction)
