Description - Love Poems And Death Threats by Samuel Wagan Watson
From acclaimed poet Samuel Wagan Watson comes a much-anticipated volume that is both wild and dynamic in its flair and vision, mapping the songlines - the poemlines - of an Australia scarred by invasion and injustice, but brimming, too, with the vital energies of creativity and resilience. With striking immediacy, Watson's often satirical take on contemporary Australia, with its acquisitiveness and materialism, bears witness to an ancient culture protesting against the implacable march of development.
Honest, powerful and compelling, this new collection from one of Australia's most recognised Indigenous poets reveals the ways love might go wrong, but, equally, its transformative power to heal and resonate in unexpected ways.
Anyone who writes a death threat utilises the same passion that can compose a love poem . . . in the same breath we all have the capacity to smile whilst we are smitten . . . Samuel Wagan Watson
From the winner of the NSW Premier's Literary Awards - Book of the Year
