Amazon.com description: Product Description: Dorothy Hewett spent her childhood on a remote wheat and sheep farm in Wickepin, Western Australia. Her adult life in Perth and Sydney was involved in the tumult of politics and writing. As a leading Australian literary figure, Hewett produced 12 collections of poetry, 3 novels, 13 plays, an autobiography, and many articles and short stories. Her impact on Australian writing was recognized in 1986, when she was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for services to literature. Most recently, the success around Wesley Enoch's new production of Man from Mukinupin at Belvoir Street Theatre in Sydney has renewed interest in Hewett's life and work. Dorothy Hewett is remembered and rediscovered in this very personal book of selected poetry. Compiled by Dorothy's daughter - poet and literary scholar Kate Lilley - Selected Poems of Dorothy Hewett encapsulates Hewett's enduring themes of grief, loss, despair, and memory. Featuring an intimate introduction by Lilley, this is the first volume to be published following Hewett's death in 2002.
