Unread, unmarked, minimal shelfwear. Australian aboriginal poetry by one of the great poets of Australian literature, Mudrooroo. He is best known for his novels, Wildcat Falling and Doctor Wooreddy's Prescription for Enduring the Ending of the World. He often lectures on the Australian cultural scene. His poetry uses this Australian multicultural context and his own Aboriginality permeates his verse, not as some age-old culture, but as a dynamic which he uses to "sing" the world from Stradbroke Island, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Europe and Asia. His poetry is cosmopolitan with influences raging from Nyaninima to Rabindranath Tagore, from Coleridge through the Beat Poets to Rap music. Part of this collection, The Song Circle of Jacky and Selected Poems, was shortlisted for the 1987 National Book Council Awards for Australian Literature. ; 184 pages
