The New Arcadia
PoemsBook - 2005
One of Australia's best poets, drawn to the natural world, vividly depicts the western Australian wheat-belt landscape in this brilliant epic poem. Analogies are made between the pastoral idyll and the radical and antipastoral necessitated by today's rural world (salinity, pesticides, road kill, soil erosion, and dispossession of indigenous peoples).
