    'Lionel Fogarty is a leading spokesman for Indigenous rights in Australia through a poetry of linguistic uniqueness and overwhelming passion. In resisting the colonising force of English, he has reterritorialised the language of the invaders and made of it a language that speaks for his people. As well as a selection of his recent poems, Lionel introduces works by two young poets, Yvette Walker and his son Kargun Fogarty.' (Source: publishers website)
