Written by John Kinsella
This most recent collection from John Kinsella takes its title from a poem of the same name. In the metaphor of the sack tumbling downstream with its cargo of drowned kittens lies layers of use, meaning and representation: love, cruelty, the pastoral, colonisation, landscape and identity. These poems are rich with intimate detail and Kinsella’s often discomfiting insight.
