The Dangerous Pursuit Of Beauty is a collection of recent poems about encounters with the wild splendour of the mined and mountainous landscapes of western Tasmania. Speaking through the imagined voices of figures such as Frida Kahlo and Cassandra, it is also an exploration of what it means to live at the margins in troubled times. It is introduced with a meditation on the power of beauty to change us.
