The poems in Knuckled are themselves bony and assertive, stripped down to the detail, which appeals in its physical quality and the manner in which it is offered, as much as in its compression of feeling. There is a strong sense of the social in Wright’s focus and selection: her details embody attitudes, prejudices, anxieties, identifications; they evoke the histories and mythologies embedded in family lore; and they carry an awareness of belonging in place.
Fiona Wright’s poetry has been published in the Age, the Australian Literary Review, Black Inc’s Best Australian Poetry and in journals and anthologies in Australia, Asia and the USA. She was awarded an Island of Residencies placement at the Tasmania Writers’ Centre in 2007, and an Emerging Writers’ Grant by the Literature Board of the Australia Council in 2010. This is her first collection of poetry. She holds the position of Publications Officer in the Writing & Society Research Group at the University of Western Sydney.
