Drowning in Wheat collects the best of three decades of John Kinsella’s astonishing poetry in one volume. Kinsella is universally acknowledged as one of the greatest living Australian poets, and arguably the most important ‘eco-poet’ of the age; however, this collection also reveals a writer of unexpected and remarkable versatility, and one fluent in an almost bewildering range of forms, registers and voices. Despite its great thematic range, Kinsella’s overarching project emerges all the more clearly: Drowning in Wheat is a clarion call and a call to order, a plea to listen to the earth – and to understand our own place within it while we still can.

It is also an ideal introduction to one of the essential poets of the age.
