Cate Kennedy has a new collection of poems.
I heard Cate talk with Ramona Koval about The Taste of River Water.
She read two of her poems during the interview on The Book Show.
Both seemed to me to be wonderful guides for those who observe and analyse performance.
The first was Thinking the room empty and the second was 8 x 10 colour enlargements S16.50.
I read Cate’s poems after finishing Stanley Fish’s How to Write A Sentence And How To Read One and delighted in Cate’s craft.
I liked too the introductory quote she used from Kristin Henry:
Here, there is no edge for cutting, and no garde for avanting, there is only the same old story, fresh as resurrection.
