THE LATEST ADDITION TO UQP'S POETRY SERIESThe poems in novelist and poet Anthony Lawrence's new volume Bark explore aspects of the Australian landscape, capturing the harshness of rural life. They also meditate on the minute and beautiful details of native birds, fish and animals. The poems are often narrative with a rich lyrical vein and reveal a fascination with figurative language and the process of creating a poem. Many of the poems featured in Bark have been published in distinguished journals.
