              In Blind Spots, Bruce Dawe (author of such popular poetry collections as Condolences of the Season and Sometimes Gladness) turns his ironic wit and poetic skills to dramatise the unexpected termination of Kevin Rudd as our PM, Julia Gillard's subsequent term of office, and Kevin ...Rudd's return. Dawe's sympathy for those subjected to the intense pressure of political office during these troubled times is evident through his tongue-in-cheek depiction of both Kevin and Julia.

              Hier Und Anderswo/Here and Elsewhere: Ausgewaehlte Gedichte/Selected Poems (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Seit Uber einem halben Jahrhundert gilt Bruce Dawes Lyrik als die fuhrende humanistische Stimme zeitgenossischer australischer Literatur. Seine Gedichte erfreuen sich einer anhaltenden Beliebtheit, wie sie Autoren dieser Gattung auch auf dem funften Kontinent nur auerst selten zu...teil wird. Dieser zweisprachige Band dokumentiert Bruce Dawes authentisch nationale Dichtkunst im Kontext einer sich global neu bestimmenden multikulturellen Gesellschaft. Im Rahmen solcher umfassenden Vielstimmigkeit schlagt der Autor paradigmatische Verbindungen zur deutschen Gegenwarts- und zeitgenOssischen Weltliteratur. Sein musterhaft dialogisch konzipiertes Werk bezieht den Leser in eine soziale Poesie Kritisch-geteilter Selbstreflexion ein. In der untrennbaren Verbindung von Warnung und Trauer, Zorn und Mitgefuhl, Scham und Schuld gibt sich eine zutiefst empfundene Betroffenheit geteilter Verantwortung zu erkennen. Die nachhaltige Anziehungskraft dieser Gedichte liegt in der Aktualitat und Reichweite ihrer Themen, im volkstumlichen Umgangston, vielschichtigen Sprachwitz und charakteristisch unterkuhlten Pathos inhrer Aussage - und in der Humanitat ihres Autors. For over half a century Bruce Dawe is considered a leading voice in contemporary Australian literature. He is Australia's best-selling and most popular living poet. This bilingual selection includes all the poems which have established Bruce Dawe's reputation. In a time of multicultural globalisation, Bruce Dawe's unmistakeably Australian voice addresses itself to many themes and concerns of contemporary world literature. It identifies itself in a continuing dialogue of critical self-reflection and understated pathos, reconciling anger andmourning, guilt and shame, judgment and compassion. Proclaiming the author's own individual share of responsibility for the welfare of contemporary global man, Dawe's self-deprecating, pleading, witty and powerful poems have little trouble proving their relevance both here and elsewhere.
