Into the World's Light

This collection explores a wide range of human experience with understanding and insight. A poem like "Photon" injects the world of particle physics with a human sensibility, while a classically referenced poem such as "Penelope At Dinner" casts a contemporary, if satirical eye, on marriage. Sometimes, in poems such as "No One Told Me I Had A Twin", a wry humour is present. Rush's poems explore significant matters, inviting you to experience their events or emotions imaginatively. With clarity and discipline, the poems lend themselves to portability, providing lines, even whole verses, to remember and savour. Above all, you'll be reminded that accessibility allied with craft can still surprise and charm. Bill Rush lives in Melbourne. He wrote his first poem at the age of seven. The author of two previous books of poetry, his work has been published in Australia and overseas. Poems in this collection have appeared in Island, Perihelion, London Poetry Review, Orbis and many other magazines. Reflecting on the human condition and its habitat, his subject matter is eclectic, ranging from the classical to the contemporary, from the natural world to the deeply personal. Like Thoreau, he sees poetry as 'healthy speech', inviting both clarity and response; also as an attempt to show with economy of words that which the Australian poet Joyce Lee once described as 'the mystery at the centre of things'. A retired pharmacist with a theology degree, Bill enjoys people, tennis, travel, art and classical music.
