Leave all your assumptions behind about the way poetry should work or look when you pick up this book. Basil Eliades writes like a painter and paints like a poet. This is form on a mission, words strained to the limit of elasticity. Take a deep breath, and plunge in! Basil Eliades writes huge thoughts contained within delicious language...yet at the same time nothing is contained. These are poems that go beyond the limits of words. By wrestling with the poems in 3rd i, by engaging with them, the world is more intensely lived. "This guy is offering us everything. This is heroic poetry. 'can you imagine me? That's what I'm going to do.'" - John Marsden. On ohne Titel (abroad): "High energy poetry and torrential writing." - The Age
