    Progress notes Campbell Holland Batt read Elizabeth Campbell I have read most of these before and am confirmed in my view that anything of hers about horses, children or illness is wonderful, but that I don t care about medieval tapestries Favourites all the horses and illness poems.Bonny Cassidy do not remember having read this poet before A lot of material about landscape and things in nature the narrative subjectivity is passive or absent No doubt artfully written, but I struggled to engage.Sarah Holland Brett do not remember having read this poet before Material is about landscape, nature and history, and a narrative subjectivity historical, mythological or presumed contemporary authorial encountering them I was struck by how little literally happens there are few events the poem has no plot, little drama and yet something is delivered that interests me anyway Contrast to my work, which is full of mini stories and likes to have a punchline I wonder if I could write like this Favourites Essay on the Toucan which is all images, but manages to be about the historical horrors of Asian politics Primavera The Graces mythological, but exciting where this kind of thing seldom excites me.
