Poems Far and Wide

John Jenkins

This very lively collection contains a wide sweep of poems, many of them prize-winning, taking readers on a remarkable journey. Some look to the past, others to the future, but all are of their time: the reverberating now. The tone is contemporary and bold, while the poet’s sensibility tends to favour an eclectic inclusiveness. Uniformly, this wide-ranging and poetically inclusive collection demands to be enjoyed. Praise for John Jenkins: ‘As striking and triumphant in current poetry as a Gauguin in a gallery of Flemish still life.’ - Robert Harris, generally on Jenkins' work, in Overland ‘There’s a whole-heartedness about how he embraces the world he sees: aware of its faults, but never stinting.’ - Sharon Olinka (USA) Thylazine website ‘The wit, language play and urbane imagery we are used to from Jenkins, as well as emotional depth and an infectious delight in language.’ - Mike Ladd, reviewing Dark River in Australian Book Review ‘Innovative, intellectually sprightly, and artistically refreshing.’ - Heather Cam, reviewing A Break in the Weather in Sydney Morning Herald
