Samuel Johnson in Marrickville

Dennis Haskell

Samuel Johnson in Marrickville

Dennis Haskell's first UK publication is a selection of poems from three full-length collections published in Australia. Closely-observed, lyrical, Romantic, humorous and above all fiercely honest, Haskell's poetry deals with the 'ordinary' — childhood, parenthood, love, sex, politics, friends, families, the sun-drenched landscape, the flash flood — in an extraordinary way. This is a powerful and memorable collection from one of Australia's most distinguished poets.

Small Stories of Devotion

Dinah Hawken

Small Stories of Devotion

Dinah Hawken won the 1987 Commonwealth Poetry Prize with her first book.

In this stunning and unforgettably elegiac book, female sensuality and spirituality are celebrated, standing together rather than split the way Christian culture has encouraged. It is a journey of discovery using very precise language, myths and contemporary writing to question our spiritual condition.
