Author(s): Vincent O'Sullivan
Seeing You Asked is Vincent O'Sullivan's first poetry book since his 1992 Selected Poems, and his first entirely new collection since 1986's The Pilate Tapes. These poems are dazzlingly well made, showing effortless command of a wide range of poetic forms. Themes range widely too, from satirical treatments of contemporary political and intellectual culture to a substantial group of moving lyric poems. This book is O'Sullivan at his finest, writing with lively wit and limpid grace, and more frankly personal than ever before. First published 1998.
