This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

Chatelaine is a collection of
poems peopled by characters who, like a family portrait, resemble one another
in foxed, latent ways. Their voices stalk outside of time and place, inhabiting
the genres of riddle, fragment, confession, lyric and ekphrasis, and returning
to images of metamorphosis and occupation. The poems
present a mossy, alien cosmology where aeroplanes are forest-like and
`signifiers turn to pulp outside the window'. They also express a language and
mood inherited through genealogy, an ethics of kin. With influences
from Kabir to New Wave Australian cinema, Lucie Brock-Broido to Oceanic
sculpture, they ask: who does the poem belong to? Who lives there and who comes
to visit?
