The West represents twenty years of work by internationally renowned poet John Mateer.

This is the first time his Australian poems have been published together in one volume and it is a timely and rewarding retrospective. Taking its bearings from the Indian Ocean, Mateer’s poetry crisscrosses the continent, inviting the reader on a journey into the psyche, culture and landscape of this country.

Introduction by Martin Harrison
