The space of the Queen is above all a liminal space between different ways of knowing.
Reading Body/Landscape Journals is like falling through a fault-line, as we respond to poesis, both as poetry and as thought creation. From Pine Gap Women's Peace Camp and interactions with women across Australia, Margaret Somerville conjures up the landscape inhabited by both Indigenous and white women in the places they call home: the mountains, the desert, the tropics. A thoughtful challenge of all that we think, concluding with reflections on the architecture of love.
