A wonderful, ultimately joyous, insight into the creative life of one of our best loved poets.

About the Author

Dorothy Porter's award-winning crime thriller in verse, The Monkey'' Mask, has become a modern Australian classic. Her other verse novels include Wild Surmise and What a Piece of Work, both short-listed for the Miles Franklin Award, Akhenaten and El Dorado. She has written libretti and song lyrics and seven volumes of poetry, most recently The Bee Hut.
On Passion was completed just before her death in December 2008.


Her essay is a vivid exploration of what inspires one writer, and a warmly energetic addition to the `On' series." -Portia Lindsay, Australian Bookseller & Publisher

"...the 10,000 word essay is a fearless reflection on the subjects that gave her life meaning: poetry, desire, nature, music and most powerfully, her own mortality" -Frances Atkinson, The Age

"Sprinkled with events from her youth and childhood this is a special little book. A delightful essay." -Kaye Brien, Launceston Examiner
