GLOBE HOTEL AND INNER CITY POEMS
Vallum Chapbook Series No. 14
In Globe Hotel and Inner City Poems, John Kinsella explores both the physical dimensions and power dynamics of the city. From the “patterns of exclusion” to the “horseshoe bridge” where “gargoyle swans smile like city mascots,” Kinsella simultaneously maps the landscape of the city and the unnamed speaker’s psyche.
John Kinsella is the author of more than thirty books of poetry and prose, including another chapbook previously published by Vallum. His most recent volume of poetry is Jam Tree Gully (WW Norton, 2011). He is a Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge, as well as a Professorial Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia.
