A hearty congratulations to Karen Knight whose villanelle from Postcards from the Asylum has been included in Villanelles, edited by Annie Finch and Marie-Elizabeth Mali and published by Random House in the prestigious Everyman Library Pocket Poets series. Karen’s poem appears in the lofty company of poets such as Dylan Thomas, Sylvia Plath, Seamus Heaney, Elizabeth Bishop, Rita Dove and Paul Muldoon.

Villanelles will be released in March 2012.
Ian Johnston, winner of the NSW Premier’s Translation Prize for his body of work in translating The Mozi and Pardalote Press publications Singing of Scented Grass and Waiting for the Owl, adds another honour to his achievements in the soon-to-be-released Penguin Classics edition of The Mozi.

Ian Johnston reads from his translations of ancient Chinese poetry and philosophy at The Wheeler Centre, Melbourne.
