Poetry of dissent

Review of Writing to the Wire (ed. D Disney and K Kelen)

Paul MUNDEN

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

This review was written at the time that Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, attending the Leaders’ Summit on Refugees convened by President Barack Obama, confirmed Australia’s long term commitment to an increased intake of refugees; ‘pragmatic and compassionate’ was his self-description of the approach. Writing to the Wire has plenty of compassion; its relation to pragmatism is altogether more complex
