Dorothy Porter was one of Australia's true originals, renowned for her passionate, punchy poetry and verse novels. This collection, the best of her life's work as selected by her partner Andrea Goldsmith, presents the many facets of Porter, from her break - out verse novel The Monkey's Mask to her posthumous collection, The Bee Hut. Whether stretching the fabric of ancient mythology, discovering the beauty of the natural world or inking an intimate message on the heart, Porter's verse is endlessly captivating. This is an essential volume for longtime admirers and newcomers alike.
