"Alison Croggon is one of the most powerful lyric poets writing today." – Australian Book Review
Raw, passionate and dazzling, Alison Croggon's poetry confronts a world fractured by different kinds of violence – patriarchal, colonial, sexual and emotional – and finds there a difficult beauty. New and Selected Poems 1991-2017 brings together works from all nine of her published collections, new poems written since 2008 and previously unpublished work. It demonstrates the full range of her poetry: formally inventive, intellectually curious and stylistically assured.
