Belinda Broughton / Not Looking For Signs
"Her poems, showing us the wonder of the world – from the towering magnificence of trees to blue wrens singing their ‘hopeful songs’ - are prescient reminders of all we stand to lose if we, as human beings, continue to see ourselves as the centre of the universe.” - Louise Nicholas
Belinda Broughton / Sparrow : poems of a Refugee
‘Under a bright Australian sun, the fascinating tale of a European life comes to light. In a sequence of incisive poems, Belinda Broughton narrates the voice of Ervin Janek – Hungarian artist and poet, son of a nun and ‘a certain Jewish man’ – who makes his ‘own path’ out of abandonment and poverty, through streets where he can hold his own against cheats and bullies, and into the wider world of exotic experience.' - Kate Deller-Evans
