South in the World
South in the World is a dialogue between the earthly and the ethereal, reality and enchantment, body and spirit - those southern and northern poles by which we navigate the world. The poems in this collection speak to family, love, and daily living, as well as a world blighted by cataclysm and touched by redemption. Lisa Jacobson is an award-winning poet and fiction writer. Poems in this book have either won or have been shortlisted for major awards: the 2011 Bruce Dawe National Poetry Prize, the 2013 Montreal International Poetry Prize, and the 2013 Fish International Poetry Prize (U.K.). Her verse novel, The Sunlit Zone (Five Islands Press, 2012), won the 2014 Adelaide Festival John Bray Poetry Award and was shortlisted for four of Australia's national awards.
