The Unmapped Page: Selected Poems

Andrew Sant

The Unmapped Page: Selected Poems

The poems selected for this book are the distillation of the work of a poet who began to receive significant attention in Australia during the 1980s and whose reputation continues to grow. Described variously by critics as "an important, innovative poet" with "a penetrating eye for the hidden geometries of meaning", Sant reveals himself in this volume as a vibrant, witty and sensuous writer with a gift for narrative exploration and an eye for intrinsic and off-beat detail.

This is a powerful and memorable collection from one of Australia's most distinguished poets.
