McCooey, David 2012, This voice and notes. In Kelen, Christopher (ed), Notes for the translators : from 140 New Zealand and Australian poets, Association of Stories in Macao / Cerberus Press, Macao, China, pp.270-271.
This poem plays around with ideas of ‘voice’. The title draws attention, through its use of a demonstrative pronoun, to the instability of voice in lyric poetry. In other words, by calling the poem ‘This Voice’, I hope to make the reader think ‘Which voice is this? The author’s? Mine? A fictional character’s?’
