Research statement

Background Too Little, Too Much is a commissioned essay which introduces the 2020 anthology Fire Front: First Nations poetry and power today, edited by Alison Whittaker and published by the University of Queensland Press. This anthology collated hundreds of contemporary and historic works of First Nations poetry in Australia and framed these pieces through curatorial and personal statements from First Nations creative practitioners. Contribution -This essay is styled as a work of historical commentary, which indexes developments in 20th century Aboriginal poetry against the time-immemorial cultural contexts of Aboriginal inscriptions. The essay is also interspersed with critical readings of several poems, such as Lorna Munro’s ‘YILAALU ‒ BU-GADI (Once Upon a Time in the Bay of Gadi)’, and the Diwurruwurru group’s ‘Millad Mob Da Best!’, each of which interweave Aboriginal languages, Aboriginal English, and contemporary poetic techniques and stylings. Significance -Following the publication of the anthology, this essay was republished by the literary magazine Meanjin in July 2020.
