Geelong Library and Heritage Centre (The Dome) - Wurdi Youang

Trigger Warning is not for the fainthearted, but neither are the elemental realities of domestic violence and environmental catastrophe that these astonishing poems address.

Comprised of three sections, the first summons a difficult personal history by conversing with poets – from Sylvia Plath to Anne Carson – whose dramatised confessions trigger Takolander’s own. The second part remains focused on the domestic, while redeeming that scene of trauma through a reinventing wit. The final section of this extraordinary book turns its attention outside, playing with poetry itself in order to confront the Anthropocene and the final frontier of death. This is poetry that balances ruthlessness and lyrical beauty; poetry alive to its time and audience; poetry not to be missed.

From award-winning and highly acclaimed author and poet Maria Takolander comes her most impressive and personal poetry collection yet.

Book sales are available through our partner bookstore, The Book Bird at Geelong West, and on their website: https://shop.thebookbird.com.au/p/trigger-warning-592e11eb-5a2a-48c8-af71-77e10cf6f510?barcode=9780702263088&search_key=trigger+warning
