Review:

If our generation needs a reminder of Orpheus Brennan is it. -- Michael Farrell * Antipodes * Brennan is a master of the ellipse.... for its musicality, strangeness and power [The Imageless World] is an astonishingly beautiful work. In years to come, it will surely be seen as one of the most important debuts of this generation of poets. -- David McCooey * Australian Book Review * The poems in Michael Brennan's first collection, The Imageless World, entice the reader with a slow-burn lucidity, skillfully peppered by a cheeky erudition. -- Dorothy Porter Michael Brennan writes a poetry attuned to the impossible, a poetry responsive to what in friendship and passion resist representation. If the world he evokes is imageless it is because, as Shelley said, the deep truth is imageless. Equally, Brennan's world is imageless because it is wholly present: even absence is felt as a brooding presence in these extraordinary poems of lost love and mourning. A flux, a passage, a taking place: such is the presence of this stunning first collection. -- Kevin Hart The letters Brennan has posted throughout The Imageless World work to create traces of worlds that exist only as languaged moments, or momentary presences, including the most intimate. Brilliant, devilish, harrowing, profound, Brennan is writing for the twenty-first century. -- J.S. Harry
