Michael J. Leach’s Natural Philosophies – Sunday session poetry launch
October 30, 2022 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Michael J. Leach (@m_jleach) is an award-winning poet, reviewer, and academic. Bookish is pleased to host the launch of his new collection.
Michael J. Leach’s new full-length collection Natural Philosophies features a pioneering array of poetry drawing on themes of birth, death, grief, love, dislocation and belonging, like his previous chapbook Chronicity (2020). Michael seamlessly unites the worlds of science, philosophy and linguistics.
‘In Natural Philosophies, science is used in elegant and surprising ways to explore the Universe, the planet we live on, the times we live in, and human life, replete as it is with loss, and grief, and love. Readers with a background in science will relish the skilful use of scientific language and metaphors, but those without will also enjoy these eloquent, moving, and playful poems.’ – Tricia Dearborn
This fascinating Recent Work Press title will be launched by Jessica L. Wilkinson, Associate Professor in Creative Writing at RMIT and editor of poetry journal Rabbit.
