Trim size: 210 x 148 mm
Words in Common is a volume of selected poems spanning a period of thirty years, and set in a variety of inner suburban locations. This is poetry with a sense of immediacy and the tactile, at times agile and experimental, often intimate, very male not macho, vulnerable, sensitive to human issues, encompassing the personal at times, but with an empathic social consciousness, and at times achieving an epic stance. The poet knows the worlds of Science and major sports, has worked with the disadvantaged and dispossessed, has a vision which embraces family life, the political sphere, and the delicacies of human relationships. Often very direct, these poems are both innovative and insightful. As Geoff Campbell has said of his selection, ‘Some were published in literary magazines, some were read in performing spaces, and public transport, some on radio, public libraries, and public gatherings.’ This volume could be a valuable contribution to our understanding of the poetry scene, from the Melbourne Poets union to DLS Literary Society and its Melbourne branch. Includes photographs by Elizabeth Gertsakis.
