Studio Moon/Tranter, John/Paper/1876857617/S047-C1
Fremantle Arts Centre Press
The poems in Studio Moon were written over the last fifteen years, and cover a wide range of styles and approaches: poems that are answers to other poets' work, sometimes wrenched out of context (a version of Schiller's 'A Maiden from Afar', for example, is set in a hamburger joint in Los Angeles), borrowings from Matthew Arnold and Barbara Guest, an ode, a three-page poem in sapphic stanzas, a computer-based pastiche, two deeply-felt elegies, two sestinas, four haibun, eight pantoums, and dozens of others, all imbued with Tranter's trademark blend of wit, style and feeling.
