Booktopia Poetry Bargains + Free Shipping

Sometimes I think I am being tracked and directly marketed to.

Last night I spent some time adding poetry bargains to my wishlist at Booktopia so they's be ready next time there was a free shipping coupon - and low and behold there was one this morning - check at the end of the post for the details.

So here's what I noticed was sitting in the bargains category- I had to sift through 800 books for these gems, you can thank me later.

Drowning in Wheat collects the best of three decades of John Kinsella's astonishing poetry in one volume. 

Kinsella is universally acknowledged as one of the greatest living Australian poets, and arguably the most important 'eco-poet' of the age; however, this collection also reveals a writer of unexpected and remarkable versatility, and one fluent in an almost bewildering range of forms, registers and voices. 

Despite its great thematic range, Kinsella's overarching project emerges all the more clearly: Drowning in Wheat is a clarion call and a call to order, a plea to listen to the earth - and to understand our own place within it while we still can. It is also an ideal introduction to one of the essential poets of the age. 

$16.50 from Booktopia.

The Dead Queen of Bohemia is a journey through a life lived on the edge. With a poetic style influenced by Gertrude Stein and William Burroughs, this collection is woven with surrealistic imagery that is both unflinching and dislocating. 

Fagan's poetry is raw and tough yet beautiful and tender and with themes of loss and recovery, hope and defiance, represents a clarion call from a self-taught poet who started writing at the age of seven and so far has not stopped. 

The Dead Queen of Bohemia documents the progression of a voice and a life written over the last twenty years. It opens with Jenni's most recent work and includes her previous two collections, both now out of print. 

$12.95 from Booktopia.

Small Town Soundtrack continues Brendan Ryan's exploration of place and belonging that resonate in country towns. From the lives of farmers, abattoir workers, and dog walkers to the history of aboriginal dispossession; from a tour of the communities of the Mt Noorat Football League in Victoria's isolated Western District to moments of wonder on back country roads celebrated with gentle irony. 

Here is a view of the country that is both contemporary and wry. Lyrical and rich in narrative power, Small Town Soundtrack is a collection that dismantles the idealised rural pastoral with an empathetic and incisive voice. 

$12.95 from Booktopia.

Now of course you don't have to go to the bargain bin. You can order something new like Alison Croggon's latest New and Selected Poems 1991-2017.

You don't even have to order poetry - but if you don't, somewhere a poetry muse shrivels up and dies a horrible wasting death.
