  • Description

    Balthazar is a donkey practitioner of amor fati. Followed and neglected by his chorus, Balthazar goes about his small village life, bearing a great love. 'Two coarse scrubbing brushes/ stored bristles inwards and snarled together:/ this is his soul/ and Marie’s'. Orphic or pastoral, the suite of poems is inspired loosely by Robert Bresson's 1966 film Au Hasard Balthazar.

    LK Holt is the author of two collections of poetry: Man Wolf Man, winner of the Kenneth Slessor Prize (NSW Premiers Awards), and Patience, Mutiny, winner of the Grace Leven Prize. She grew up in Adelaide, and lives in Melbourne.
