Judith Wright Books, Judith Wright poetry book The Coral Battleground Authors: Judith Wright
Publisher:
Published Date: 2014
Categories: Nature
The Great Barrier Reef lies off the coast of Queensland: 2000 kilometres of spectacular coral reefs, sand cays and islands, Australias most precious marine possession. Teeming with life, it covers 350,000 square kilometres. In the late 1960s the Reef was threatened with limestone mining and oil drilling. A small group of dedicated conservationists in Queensland John B├╝sst, Judith Wright, Len Webb and others battled to save the Ellison Reef from coral-limestone mining and the Swain Reefs from oil exploration. The group later swelled to encompass scientists, trade unionists and politicians throughout Australia, and led in 1976 to the establishment of a guardian body: the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. That it still survives is a legacy of activists, artists, poets, ecologists and students. In 1967 they were branded as cranks; now they should be recognised as visionaries.

Judith Wright Books, Judith Wright poetry book The Generations of Men Authors: Judith Wright
Publisher: Editions Tom Thompson
Published Date: 1999-04
Categories: Science
'The Generations of Men' is the pioneering story of the ancestors of Australia's best-known poet, Judith Wright. The names, dates and events are factual and are based on diaries, letters and personal reminiscences. Wright has taken this factual material and with her poet's imagination turned it into a reconstruction of a past era; people, places and even moods. This is a beautifully written family history that documents not only the settling of Wright's own family into New South Wales' last century, but also the life of a nation, as Australia was colonized by 'generations of men' unsuited in many ways to the historical and geographical context of their new environment. For many years unavailable, Judith Wright's elegant chronicle is fascinating both as a historical document and a personal meditation.

Judith Wright Books, Judith Wright poetry book A Human Pattern Authors: Judith Wright, John Kinsella
Publisher: Carcanet Press
Published Date: 2010
Categories: Poetry
Judith Wright (1915-2000) is one of Australia's best loved, and essential, poets, devoted to place, responsive to landscape and to the violence done to the land and its inhabitants. As John Kinsella writes in his introduction, 'she looked inwards into Australia, and in doing so made the local...universal'. A Human Pattern, a selected poems she prepared after she had abandoned writing poetry in order to devote her time to fighting for Aboriginal rights and conservation, presents her best work from 1946 to her last collection, Phantom Dwelling (1986). Australia, alive with human and natural history, is vibrant in this selection. She is, John Kinsella writes, 'a poet of human contact with the land'. She speaks directly to our perennial concerns.

Judith Wright Books, Judith Wright poetry book The Equal Heart and Mind Authors: Judith Wright, Jack Philip McKinney
Publisher: Univ. of Queensland Press
Published Date: 2004
Categories: Biography & Autobiography
The Equal Heart and Mind is an intimate portrait of poet Judith Wright and philosopher Jack McKinney. Set in Brisbane and at Mt Tamborine, where they lived for almost twenty years, these letters vividly recreate their intertwined lives and also paint an unforgettable picture of postwar Brisbane with its lively cabals of writers, artists and intellectuals.For decades, Judith Wright kept secret this cache of letters, giving them late in life to her daughter Meredith McKinney. Meredith and Patricia Clarke have edited the letters, interspersing them with poems, a selection of family album photographs and facsimiles of some of the handwritten and typescript letters. Meredith also contributes a special memoir of her parents, and the book concludes with Judith's moving account of Jack's death in 1966.These letters, poems and commentaries - along with the illustrations - together make an exquisite addition to the field of Australian literary biography.

Judith Wright Books, Judith Wright poetry book Born of the Conquerors Authors: Judith Wright
Publisher: Aboriginal Studies Press
Published Date: 1991-01-01
Categories: History
Judith Wright is perhaps Australia's best known poet, and she has also published numerous essays, children's books and documentary histories. When her work for he Aboriginal Treaty Committee came to an end in 1985 with the publication of "We Call for a Treaty", Judith Wright along with other committee members, made a promise to do what she could to keep the issue of justice for Aboriginal people alive. In the interim she has continued her activities in conservation and environmental organisations. "Born of the Conquerors" is a further attempt to fulfil her promise to aboriginal people and a message to us all about our need to care for the land. This collection brings together for the first time twenty-one essays, previously published in a wide variety of journals and other publications. They range from the autobiographical to political comment to literary criticism, but Judith Wright's strong concerns for the survival of Aboriginal culture and the environment run through them all.

Poem of the day

Sidney Lanier Poem
Tyranny.
 by Sidney Lanier

'Spring-germs, spring-germs,
I charge you by your life, go back to death.
This glebe is sick, this wind is foul of breath.
Stay: feed the worms.

'Oh! every clod
Is faint, and falters from the war of growth
And crumbles in a dreary dust of sloth,
