Wolf Notes

Judith Beveridge

Wolf Notes has been seven years in the writing, and follows Judith Beveridge’s two earlier award-winning collections, The Domesticity of Giraffes and Accidental Grace.

Beveridge’s poetry is remarkable for its attentiveness to the humble rituals of life. It discovers richness and grace in the smallest, the poorest, the most awkward or most transient of beings.

There is a Buddhist underpinning to this awareness of latent power, recognised in the collection’s central sequence of poems, which depicts Siddhattha Gotama’s wandering through the forests and towns of Northern India before he became the Buddha.
