New and Selected Poems: Munaldjali, Mutuerjaraera
Lionel Fogarty has been acclaimed as the most authentic voice to emerge from a radical new generation of Aboriginal writers. In this collection of poems selected from his five published volumes together with a substantial number of new poems, Fogarty gives us a clear insight into the complexities and passions of black existence. He puts the reader in touch with the spirituality of Murri culture and invites us to experience the oppression and suffering endured by his people. Lionel's poems are written with directness, honesty and passion. Deliberately using the creole language of the Murri people in preference to standard English, Fogarty's poems are gauntlets thrown down in front of the white reader, and powerful litanies for his own people.
