NEW RELEASE: Burning Bright

Award-winning poet Caroline Caddy’s latest collection, Burning Bright, is an acutely observed meditation on her encounters with the world.

The Australian Book Review said Caddy’s ‘carefully crafted poems are refreshing journeys of discovery which open up unfamiliar places, bringing them potently alive.’ Quadrant praised her ‘stunningly original descriptions’ while The West Australian said Caddy ‘is to be hailed as a master poet with a style and panache all of her own.’

From the south coast of Western Australia to China, her poems chart a breathtaking journey across landscapes, punctuated by departure and return. From these poems, the reader may be rewarded with ‘that human thrill / of sensing a pattern beginning to form / the delight at finding it doesn’t’ (‘Shanghai Renga’).
