SONG CYCLE IN LOVE AND FURY

Australia’s Judith Wright wasn’t your average poet. Passionately committed to environmental causes and the plight of Indigenous Australians for most of her 85 years, her poetry is consequently riven by binary oppositions: humankind verses the environment, Aborigines verses Europeans, the inner world verses the outer, words verses reality.

So it will come as no surprise that ‘With Love and Fury’ isn’t your average song cycle.
