The Goldfinches of Baghdad
Poetry. Robert Adamson has long been recognized as one of Australia's major poets, from his early writing as a poet maudit in Sydney through twenty books of verse and prose. In THE GOLDFINCHES OF BAGHDAD, he explores the landscape of the Hawkesbury River, sounding its waters and wildlife for psychological resonances. As Robert Creeley writes, "Robert Adamson is that rare instance of a poet who can touch all the world and yet stay particular, local to the body he's been given in a literal time and place. He is as deft and resourceful a craftsman as exists, and his poems move with a clarity and ease I find unique."

Review: The Goldfinches Of BaghdadUser Review - Valerie - Goodreads
I am not really into poetry so this book was a bit of a challenge for me but for the most part it was pretty good. It's beautifully written and quite detailed with emotion but some of it is lost on me because I don't really dig poetry. Read full review
