reading revival: a poetry book blog

reading revival is devoted to promoting australian poetry books and related discussion through reading one book - firstly, duty by geraldine mckenzie. i will choose a new book roughly every 3 months

the word i most strongly associate with mckenzies poetry is integrity. i tried to think of an american equivalent (i dont mean one that has integrity, but one that gives me that feeling) and i came up with creeley; otherwheres theres celan; an email correspondent had the same thought, hopefully more from him soon ... also id like to say that i dont intend this discussion to be among just those who already write criticism, review books -- or even have published or write poetry -- anyone who reads poetry is welcome -- your thoughts are not merely interesting to me, but vital to the discussion ...

Hi Mikey,
has Geraldine had any poems online? maybe it would be good to post some links to them where they appear? eg Jacket? (I'm sure I could just google it myself but it might give readers some extra context too).
Looking good.
