John Kinsella has dusted down the pastoral, and made it a vibrant, contemporary form. The Hierarchy of Sheep is a powerful new installment to his "counter-pastoral" project, a new way of viewing the natural and artificial worlds. Things are never what they seem.

These are poems of place, loss, ethics, painting, vernacular, new ideas expressed against a backdrop of "tradition", and, above all else, language - a potential new language of place. They ask the question: How much do we ourselves adapt as we move from one landscape to another?

John Kinsella "investigates" the landscapes of the Australian wheatbelt and the English fens, sometimes in isolation, at other times fusing them together. His ways of seeing landscape are politically aware - against colonisation and appropriation - but always open to possibilities of hybrid change and growth.
