Summary
"Knocks is the debut collection from one of the most exacting writers of Australian poetry?s new wave. Stewart?s poetry consistently surprises in its formal range, encompassing sonnets, erasures and found poetry, and striking at the level of the image ?“the computer ecstasy of first-person”.The collection conveys the sense of an extended, “stretched” present, politically shadowed, where “it is commendable / to sign up each day, but better / to maintain a patina of disobedient / actions, shoplifting or whatever”. Individual poems consider place, persona, fandom, viruses, data and desire in evoking “a residual gala of feeling”. Yet out of variety emerges a very particular architecture: these are the works of a poet obsessed with the structure of the everyday; its litter and networks, idiom and drama: “today a princess bites off her plait / today paper shredders are put to good use”. Tender, argumentative, affecting ? this is poetry that moves."--Back cover
