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

perhaps im concentrating too much on adenfreude/adenfruede fragments - but it seems an exemplary beginning to the book (though perverse - to begin a book of verse with an etymological presentation in prose.. & yet reasonable enough too) - duty opens out from these two poems. i can imagine the book opening with the following poem 'after ritsos' which would have been more neutral, less a statement of intent.
