An intensely personal exploration and celebration of the life and work of one of Australia's premier poets, Judith Wright, through the landscape and country she loved so much
Fiona Capp, novelist and author of the acclaimed memoir That Oceanic Feeling, was 17 years old when she first met Judith Wright. Everything that followed from this encounter led her, 30 years later, on a journey through the landscapes that made Wright one of Australia's greatest poets and environmental visionaries. Capp follows in Wright's footsteps through the high tableland of New England, the rainforests of Queensland, and the austere bushland outside Canberra, uncovering the land out of which the poetry sprang. Her travels also take the reader through the life of the poet—the early tragedy that shaped her childhood, her complex relationship with her family, and the two great loves of her life—while exploring the well-springs of Wright's art and activism.
