Luke Fischer - A Personal History of Vision - Saturday 11th March
With a panel discussion from Peter Boyle, Brook Emery and Deborah Bird Rose.
A Personal History of Vision (UWAP Poetry, 2017) is the fourth book and second collection of poems by poet and philosopher, Luke Fischer.
"His second book of poetry shows Luke Fischer is outstanding among a new generation of Australian poets – there is everywhere throughout it intimations of the sublime."
– Robert Gray
"Luke Fischer unites what is best in the Romantics’ vision of poetry, an ability to enter fully into the beauty of existence, with a spirit of intellectual rigour as the mind interrogates the act of perception. These close and fruitful readings of nature, of human existence and of art, while recognizing the tragic element of life, offer a rich tapestry of the sensual. In this new collection Fischer makes of poetry the sensitive, skilful translation of 'feeling’s contours'."
– Peter Boyle
