Product Details

“I think of how Pound defined the image as ‘that which presents an intellectual and
emotional complex in an instant of time’; and, still being thoroughly sane back in
1913, he went on to say: ‘the natural object is always the adequate symbol’. Such an
imagist doctrine has always been at the heart of Laurie Duggan’s sharp-eyed work,
ever since the days when he was at the core of a group who got together at Monash,
back in the 1960s.” —Chris Wallace-Crabbe
“Duggan’s is a poetry that determines to surprise: almost daring a reader to exclaim:
you wrote like this about that?” —Alan Wearne, Sydney Morning Herald
