Description

Two Poets contains exciting new collections by award-winning Western Australian poets Andrew Lansdown and Kevin Gillam. In her introduction, poet and critic Lisa Gorton says Lansdown works at the 'art of precision' and an 'aesthetic of exact detail' while Gillam attends 'not to the still moment, but to the haphazard and open-ended experience of time'.

Review quote

"Lansdown has a very sincere and direct way of handling poems about his immediate family which subtly suggests great tenderness without becoming sentimental." --Geoff Page, Australian poet and author, 60 Classic Australian Poems "Lansdown has few superiors as a technician." --Les Murray, Australian poet, Taller When Prone "Lansdown remains the doyen, in Australia, of this sort of exquisite, small-scale, nature poem. Easy to attempt, devilishly hard to do!" --John Jenkins, Australian poet, Growing Up with Mr Menzies "Andrew Lansdown has established a clear reputation as an imagist of high order in Australia. . . . Many of the poems are short, operate by comparisons, by metaphor especially, and have the property of startling the reader into shifts of perception and deep emotion." --Philip Salom, Australian poet and author, Keepers
