Perth Writers Festival - Sunday 1st March 2009: 5.00 - 6.00pm @ the Dolphin Theatre UWA.

Robert Adamson and Mark Tredinnick will consider themes that shape their poetry and share some of their recent writing. Chair: Johanna Featherstone.
Robert Adamson's books, including Inside Out grace the shelves of my poetry library. I have all but two, however, his latest collection The Golden Bird includes poetry from those collections. I am yet to discover Tredinnick's work, but Adamson, I believe, along with Anthony Lawrence, are the best poets writing today. Both poets write of a life lived. This gives me the reader insight into their personal world, relaying an immediacy of experience, knowledge, and a poeticism (form & feeling) that convey a sense of "place/lifestyle" deep into one's consciousness. I know Adamson's world. I grew up on the Central Coast in Ettalong, Broken Bay, and therefore my interest in his work is not only associative, nostalgic & also inspirational, but allows me once again to enter the Hawkesbury - to enter into its dark recesses, as well as its unique beauty. I thoroughly recommend his large & beautiful book -poetry & photography Juno Gemmes- The Language of Oysters.
