Judith Beveridge, Peregrine
Peregrine contains work from Judith Beveridge's highly acclaimed third book, Wolf Notes, which won the 2004 Victorian Premier's Prize for Poetry and the Judith Wright Calanthe Poetry Award.
"Wolf Notes consists of three sections. In the first, Beveridge presents poetic portraits that are both tender and unsentimental, often centring on figures living marginal lives: the saffron picker; the dice player. This sense of timelessness or the exotic is even more present in the book's long second section, the prize-winning sequence, Between the Palace and the Bodhi Tree." David McCooey, The Age, March 20, 2004.
