About the Book: The long-awaited second collection from the winner of the 2015 Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize. In his stunning collection of new poetry, Stuart Barnes reimagines the poetic form and fearlessly explores topics of illness, death, rape, remembrance, ecology and love. Like to the Lark is Stuart Barnes’s accumulation of lifetime fascinations with music and sound, form and transformation. Beginning with an apparition of a doomed world brooding over itself and ending with a kvelling globe, this collection plunges into seas, scoots across countries and hurtles towards space. About the Author: Stuart Barnes is a poet from Hobart. His first book, Glasshouses, won the 2015 Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize, was commended for the 2016 Anne Elder Award and shortlisted for the 2017 Mary Gilmore Award. ‘Cerberus watches Eros’ was nominated for the 2020 Pushcart Prize, ‘Off-world Ghazal’ was shortlisted for the 2020 Montreal International Poetry Prize and ‘Sestina after B. Carlisle’ won the 2021/22 Gwen Harwood Poetry Prize. Cover artwork: Stuart Barnes
