Description

'Eelahroo (Long Ago) Nyah (Looking) Mobo-Mobo (Future)' is the most recent collection from Australia's foremost experimental and political poet and one of the best known contemporary Aboriginal Australian writers, Lionel G. Fogarty. "Sometimes angry, defiant, sometimes sad, and always in love with people and country, Lionel Fogarty is cosmically off the scales, holds multitudes, is wise, riddling, and funny too. Like all romantics the word is energy, wilderness and invention, but the modern is where he's going. If these poems were dice, they're all loaded. There's no voice comes close to this intensity. And if you want something predictable and 'correct' (in terms of language and rhetoric) go elsewhere. 'Here comes the tranquility incarnation.'" -Adam Aitken "Once again Lionel Fogarty presents a collection of poems unique in the telling. From bar room brawls to constitutional referendums, past loves and hopes for the future, these new poems obliterate the landscape, holding the reader in a place of Aboriginal contemplation." -Ali Cobby Eckermann
