Over the past nine years, Fay Zwicky's repertoire of philosophical meditations, with autobiographical underpinning, has been modified and extended by a close engagement with contemporary political and cultural concerns. Whether dramatised in present-day terms, or brought into focus through historical parallels, the poems collected in Picnic probe the uses and abuses of power, most notably in the central sequence, 'The Terracotta Army at Xi'an', which explores modern despotism in the ancient guise of the Quin Dynasty. Austere, elegaic, occasionally satirical, playful and ironic, these poems approach mortality with few illusions, written, as the poet notes, 'against the coming dark'.

Here in your hands you have a book of my poetry and reflections. It’s strange to state this, as words for me are phantom things that hint at deeper realities, and poetry has always been at the heart of my thinking. Not the mechanics of words and intentions, structure and word play, but the penumbral possibilities that lurk alongside metaphor, cultural clues and organic being.

Sixteen of Australia's foremost poets are featured in this volume. They talk candidly about their lives and work: of the craft, the rigour, the pangs and pleasures of their calling; of winged moments caught, however fleetingly, on the page. These writers also speak of transformation and transcendence, the creative process, their individual modes and methods of writing and the act of writing itself. The interviews provide valuable insights on such topics as: gender and writing; landscape; the function of poetry and the poet's social role; influences embraced and withstood - literary, personal, local, regional, national, international. The writers and their poetry are discussed from both within and beyond Australian borders. This collection offers a broad range of Australian poets, most of whom are now in the middle to later years of their career. These poets have contributed significantly to the life and quality of poetry in Australia over recent decades, and continue to play pivotal roles in Australia's cultural domain today, as the country moves towards the threshold of a new century.
