These two books of poetry comprise several exercises in 'translation'. The central work is my self-transformation: a marriage-migrant from England (the first three sections of Spinning Outside In ) into an Australian writer. The writing has been the site of my growing awareness of what being in Australia means in terms of loss and of gain, and, through alienation, of learning to listen to my inner Self - this Self being conceived in a post-jungian context.
