||Based on the western Australian landscape and loosely modeled on Philip Sidney's classic romantic pastoral "Arcadia."
One of Australia's best poets, drawn to the natural world, vividly depicts the western Australian wheat-belt landscape in this brilliant epic poem. Analogies are made between the pastoral idyll and the radical and antipastoral necessitated by today's rural world (salinity, pesticides, road kill, soil erosion, and dispossession of indigenous peoples).
