The Wing Collection presents a broad overview of the distinctive contribution Diane Fahey has made to Australian poetry over the course of thirty years. It offers extensive selections from her work on birds and insects, on the worlds of myth and story, and on meetings with river and sea. A search for spiritual touchstones guides her many-layered explorations of the mysteries of place, time, and transformation.
Diane Fahey is one of Australia's foremost poets. She has published twelve books of poetry, the most recent being The Stone Garden: Poems from Clare. Sea Wall and River Light, a collection of sonnets set in Barwon Heads, was a winner of the ACT Government's Judith Wright Poetry Award. Other awards include the Newcastle Poetry Prize, the John Shaw Neilson Poetry Award, and the Wesley Michel Wright Award. She lives in at Clifton Springs on the Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria.
