Flute of Milk
Flute of Milk is Susan Fealy’s first full-length collection of poems after years of publication in Australian and US journals and anthologies including Australian Book Review, The Best Australian Poems 2009, 2010 and 2013 (Black Inc.), Contemporary Australian Feminist Poetry (Hunter, 2016), Poetry (Chicago), and Villanelles (Everyman's Library Pocket Poets, 2012).
The collection is in two parts, with each one interrogating love, loss, gender and aesthetics. The poems refract these themes through personal experience, as well as through a broader cultural lens. Some of these works are direct responses to the act of reading literature. The hallmark of this collection is precision with language: these works are always present and vivid.
