- THE DOROTHY HEWETT AWARD
By Alice Savona
Self i.e. is a book-length study of identity, built upon the poet’s professional & personal absorption of humanistic psychology, systemic theory & attachment styles within relationships.
“Alice Savona is a distinctive voice in contemporary Australian poetry – drawing upon a postmodern repertoire whilst remaining grounded in deep-seated human concerns. The poems are characterised by their strong visual elements, their droll/ironic wordplay (‘Self ie’ vs. ‘Selfie’) and their awareness of the dilemmas of auto-biography in this age of pervasive social media.”
