Notes

  • Epigraph: For me, everything in the world of form is understood through our bodies. From our mother's breast, from our bones, from bumping into things, we learn what is rough and what is smooth. - Henry Moore

    y separately published work icon White Clay Lucy Dougan , Artarmon : Giramondo Publishing , 2008 Z1340361 2006 selected work poetry 'A complex awareness of family life is at the heart of Lucy Dougan's new collection. Its narrative interweavings lead us from the world of books and romance into motherhood and its immersion in the world of children, then summon up, in turn, the poet's own childhood, and its barely recognised estrangements, 'the father that I did not know', and later a whole new family, to be reclaimed as her own. Dougan's poems are alive to the intimations which exist at 'the fugitive border of thought', and celebrate the imagination's power to mould, to recover, and to repair.' (Publisher's blurb) Artarmon : Giramondo Publishing , 2008 pg. 35-40
