New book reviews recently added to August 2014 issue of Plumwood Mountain journal

Two new books reviews are available. While we usually review books of or about poetry, sometimes we are open to broader reviews. Rod Giblett’s review of Germaine Greer’s White Beech is one such. Greer’s narrative describes her self-chosen work to purchase and rehabilitate a block of degraded rainforest in south-eastern Queensland. While, other reviewers have found Greer’s White Beechmaddeningly brilliant“, “searching and rousing“, Rod Giblett would like to see Greer’s experience narrated consciously in the wider context of nature writing traditions. As always we are open to respectful and considered comment on our content.

The second is my review of Robert Adamson’s Empty Your Eyes, a short work of 12 poems from the Vagabond Rare Objects series.
