Author(s): HODGSON ELIZABETH
This collection of poetry considers the nature of memory and its historical and emotional significance. Hodgson's use of language is matched by the imagery and structure as she explores themes of art, identity, sexuality and loneliness. The poems reference widely and have the impact and haunting qualities of Tracey Moffatt's photography, and echoes of Dorothy Porter's ability to insert a sting in the tail of a poem.
