About this product
- DescriptionRobert Adamson has been urished for much of his life by Australia's Hawkesbury River. Reading the River praises nature - red in tooth and claw - and celebrates existence as a mythological quest. The early poems trace Adamson's own journey through a difficult childhood, prison and exile in the city, the source of a hard-won scepticism undercutting the highly personal Romanticism and daring lyricism of his later work.
- Author BiographyRobert Adamson was born in Sydney in 1943 and grew up in Neutral Bay and on the Hawkesbury River, New South Wales. From 1970 to 1985 he edited Australia's New Poetry magazine, and in 1988, with Juno Gemes, he established Paper Bark Press, one of Australia's leading poetry publishers. His many award-winning publications include sixteen poetry books, an autobiography, and two books of autobiographical fiction.
