At the age of twenty-four, Dimity Ware was told she could never have children and would die in her thirties. In response, she announced her lesbianism, left her husband, and gave birth to a son. Ianto Ware crafts a bittersweet homage to his mother — single parent, lesbian feminist, and ardent socialist — who waged a four-decade war on her conservative neighbourhood, primarily through the medium of gardening.

Eurydice Speaks is a linked sonnet series echoing voices that emerge from the Underworld. This collection illustrates the evocative, associative and allusive power in the methods of poetry: to know and be known, to feel and be felt, to gather and cohere.

Something is terribly wrong. The news lurches between horror show and parody. Aeroplanes disappear from radar screens. The Holocene obliterates itself.

‘What use is music your body can’t hold,
that can’t take you from this world?’

Australia has a rich history of feminist poetry but there is no one kind of feminist voice.

Each of the seventy new poems commissioned for this anthology cuts its own path through language. Together, their politics are restless, inextricably tied to the now.
