AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In This Woman Adrienne Eberhard's themes of gardens and nature, fecundity, random illness and cycles of renewal, explore the vital connections that develop between people and place. Ranging from the D'Entrecasteaux Channel to Canton, Papua New Guinea and Kew and from the eighteenth century to the present, these poems investigate ways in which physical places create mental and emotional spaces fundamental to human needs. Poems about motherhood and children; birds and animals; Aboriginal hand stencils, and love poems that draw connections between geography and the human body, give us an intimate view of our earthly presence. The title poem adds a plangency and raw tenderness to work which reminds us of what it means to be human, and in particular, a woman.hen Adrienne Eberhard assumes the persona of Jane, Lady Franklin, wife of the colonial Governor Sir John Franklin, she releases herself as a poet of intimate engagements. In a suite of poems, linked together like a chain of ponds, she follows Jane Franklin's Tasmanian years. Water, rocks, fossils, step daughters, desire or guilt and betrayal, and love of the physical world seethe in her lines.' Source: http://blackpepperpublishing.com/ Sighted 03/05/2012).
