Argosy

Author(s): Bella Li

Poetry

Drawing inspiration from the surrealist collage novels of Max Ernst, Bella Li's debut full-length collection Argosy is an arresting and utterly unique assemblage of poetry, collage and photography. In two parts, the book engages with themes of travel and exploration, language and loss, identity and originality, as well as the relationship between poetry and other disciplines: the visual arts, history, literature and film. Polyglot in sensibility and content, and daring in construction, Argosy defies categorisation. Grounded firmly in Australian contemporary poetic practice, it constitutes a landmark in both local and international poetics.


'Li is a cartographer of a different kind. Her map-making is as aesthetic as it is topographic, plotting fragmented histories, horizons and the spectral lands of memory and dream.' Tamryn Bennett, Mascara Literary Review


Bella Li is the author of the chapbook Maps, Cargo (Vagabond Press, 2013), shortlisted for the Wesley Michel Wright Prize.
