Body in Time / Nervous Arcs

Body in Time / Nervous Arcs

Description

In this, her fifth collection, Diane Fahey explores diverse settings in Venice, Scotland and Australia. She is also the inner traveller, revisiting sites of trauma and hard-won knowledge in youth and adult life. The core of the book is a kind of reckoning in which the body itself, layered with memories, becomes the ultimate focus. Jordie Albiston's first collection of poetry documents the complex worlds of music and memory, history and art, from the perspectives of such figures as Frida Kahlo, Emily Dickinson, the witches of Salem, Ahab and Frankenstein. Voicing the unspoken languages of the body, these poems negotiate the corporeal narrative of anorexia, abortion, conception and desire with an elegant tension between content and form.
