Inside Black Australia: An Anthology of Aboriginal Poetry
Penguin, 1988 - Fiction - 213 pages
From the campfires and 'reserves' of the desert, from riverbeds and prison cells, from universities and urban ghettoes come the inside voices of Australia. These are tough poems that resist the silence of genocide and the destruction of culture. The collection is an angry call for justice and the restoration of the land and the Dreaming. The Aboriginal lives glimpsed give white Australians a hint of the deep possibilities of belonging in this land.
