Kate Llewellyn

Art is always like this
Mysterious as light.

Quiet and insightful, raw in its simplicity, this collection of poems from iconic Australian poet Kate Llewellyn, written between the years of 2000 to 2019, examines a life well lived, dipping in and out of memory to tell a tale of small moments and the wisdom of growing old.

In the poem 'Harbour' she touches on what is lost and gained in growing up, 'The Big Nothing' draws readers along on a journey to view the world through another's eyes, and 'What They Said' brings forth a cacophony of voices, opinions and dreams across a lifetime.

Moving, profound and often joyful, this collection is a must-have for all Kate Llewellyn fans.

Kate Llewellyn is the author of 25 books comprising poetry, memoir, travel, essays, journals, and letters. She is the co-editor of The Penguin Book of Australian Women Poets. Her book The Waterlily: A Blue Mountain Journal sold over 35,000 copies and is soon to be republished. Kate was the first National Secretary of the Poets Union of Australia and now lives in Hove, South Australia.
