Parts Of Speech

The birds respond following as if agreed a chromatic complicated edge. Point and counterpoint the singing river. Downstream the birds – a final grace note. ‘Angela Gardner’s first book introduces a promising new talent to Australian poetry. Invigorated by compelling investigations of memory and politics, her poems are intimate and lucid reflections on nature, family, art, science and the imagination. “Parts of Speech” are in good hands.’ Peter Minter ‘Every time I look at Angela Gardner’s work it appears more wonderful. It is sure-footed, permeated by science and other realms of knowledge that poetry often avoids. There’s a world at work here; not a parallel universe but our own, refracted brilliantly.’ Laurie Duggan

Angela Gardner’s Parts of Speech, winner of the prestigious Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize in 2006, is an impressive addition to the UQP poetry series. Gardener’s poems are strongly influenced by her work as a visual artist – strange lines of observation – they are smart, fragmentary, preoccupied with language and its limits.
