The Cool Web

Published : Tuesday, January 05, 2010

On Saturday 21 November I launched Judith Beveridge’s new poetry collection, Storm and Honey, at Gleebooks in Sydney.

Judy is one of Australia’s finest poets, so to launch her fine new collection of lyric poems and dramatic monologues, was a delight and an honour.

There are a few photos of us in action on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wiggo/4126962144/

I spoke around an essay I’ve written about Judy, the beautiful body of her work, the nature of poetry (its cool web of language), and the nature of Judy’s particular lyric sublime as you’ll discover it in the new collection. The essay is likely to come out in Heat later this year; meantime an abridged version appears in Indigo 5 soon.

Read the book; it’s a wonder.
