'Winner of the 2015 Thomas Shapcott Prize for Poetry trumpeting through blood & bone the glasshouse's yellow stars Glasshouses is an inventive, incandescent collection by one of Australia's most talented new poets. Drawing on a number of complex techniques, Stuart Barnes illuminates both city and coastal life, with allusions to classical and contemporary culture. Replete with extraordinary imagery, the poems maintain a beautiful accessibility and coherence despite their continually twisting, even disjointed figures.' (Publication summary)
