Full Description
"If he had lived as long as his admired Goethe, he would probably have been Goethe." - Clive James

Philip Hodgins is unique in his unflinchingly honest and mordant account of country life in Australia. In a vivid and lucid style, his astonishing poems reveal the complexities, depths and urgencies of living at the edge of life and death. Renowned for his sophisticated yet understated craftsmanship, Hodgins writes with subtlety, humour and heartbreaking intensity.
