Liquid nitrogen by Jennifer Maiden( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jennifer Maiden's poems are like verse essays, subjecting the political issues of our time, and the figures who dominate them, to a fierce scrutiny, while allowing the personal aspects of experience to be portrayed in the most delicate and imaginative ways. This is the quality of liquid nitrogen which gives the book its title - 'the frozen suspension which is risky/ but also fecund and has beauty' - it is a substance which permits the most intense and heated interactions, and at the same time, the survival of delicate organisms. In the cool medium of Maiden's poetry Julia Gillard confronts her

Intimate geography : selected poems, 1991-2010 by Jennifer Maiden( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jennifer Maiden's Intimate Geography charts territory both personal and political, private and global. Responding to international conflicts and crises, many of her poems probe moral dilemmas, confronting the existential, ethical problem of evil: why people commit inhuman acts. Always pointedly serious, her poems can also be flamboyant or risque, outrageously witty, or daringly provocative. They blur, challenge, and cross the boundaries between real and imagined, fact and fiction, inner lives and the world outside us

The metronome by Jennifer Maiden( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Metronome is the third in Giramondo's series of annual poetry collections by award-winning poet Jennifer Maiden, addressing political and social issues of the moment, particularly here the tension caused by the election of the US president. Building on the two previous collections Drones and Phantoms and The Fox Petition, The Metronome features intimate conversations about power and policy between contemporary figures and their historical counterparts, the patriots Jeremy Corbyn and Constance Markievicz on a walk in the Scottish Highlands, Governor Bligh and his namesake Wiliam Bligh Turnbull discussing the difference between temper and temperament, Eleanor Roosevelt counselling Hillary Clinton on the use of violence, Jane Austen and Tanya Plibersek talking about sense and sensibility in Sydney's Botanical Gardens. Throughout, we admire Maiden's ability to read the faces and gestures of public figures, the strength of her women, her magical settings, and the rhythmical beat of the poetic metronome, offering reassurance and continuity in a period of austerity and fear."--Back cover

The fox petition by Jennifer Maiden( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New poems by Australia's foremost political poet, written in response to the socialcrises that confront us now. Jennifer Maiden's new collection deals with xenophobia and the rejection ofotherness, whether immigrant or domestic. It takes as its emblem the fox, representing our fear of the introduced and ill-reputed, but its title also refers to thepetition of the great Whig statesman, Charles James Fox, for the rights of all people, including freedom of speech and habeas corpus. Fox himself is the subject of some ofthe poems, while others focus on the crisis in Greece, Hillary Clinton and EleanorRoosevelt reflecting on poverty and human rights in Iowa, and the development ofJulie Bishop in relation to the vulnerability and sensibility engendered by politics andcrisis. There is a dialogue between Obama and Gandhi on the methods needed toensure political results, Kevin Rudd tries to explain Manus Island to DietrichBonhoeffer, and Keith Murdoch and his son Rupert discuss their attempts at idealismin the glass penthouse apartment of the latter."--Publisher description
