Product Description

Laurie Duggan’s first book of poetry, East: Poems 1970 –1974 appeared in 1976 when the poet was 27. This reprinting of his debut work includes the addition of several poems from the early 1970s, all in mostly chronological order. Under the Weather, first published in 1976 is here reprinted in a corrected text, as well as revisions of some poems which the author made shortly after the original publication.


“The repackaged version of Under the Weather is, in contrast, an unqualified blessing re-establishing just how good a second book this was. Again, the documentary impulse is what sustains it but it is a documenting of personal life, often involving travel either to the north – to Armidale, the Sara River, etc – or to the south – Kangaroo Valley, Coalcliff, Dapto.” MARTIN DUWELL, Australian Poetry Review
