Bibliography


Christopher Brennan, Poems (1913), Sydney, 1992. NOTE: Refer to Part II of 'Interlude: The hearth and the window' especially the lines: "when the lone window watch'd the lonely road/ winding into the exiled west, across/ the desolate plain, with, seldom on its fosse/ tipt black against grey gloom, a poplar spire...".
