Totem Poem plus 40 Love Poems

Luke Davies
AUD $23.99
Availability: Print on demand

An exquisite collection of physical, sensual poems which confirms Davies' reputation as one of Australia's foremost poets.

Intimate lyrical grace sustained on an orchestral scale. Alive with heat and sex.

Totem confirms Luke Davies' position as one of our most important contemporary poets. An ecstatic hymn to love and life, grandly dense, hallucinatory in its intensity, Totem Poem' glows like a sun at the heart of this book; the diamond-edged 40 love poems', exquisite lyrics of romance, passion and intimacy, circle it like satellites.

In this new collection Davies has created an extraordinarily moving and beautiful poetic universe, at once richly physical and uncompromisingly metaphysical.
