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.

Love poetry? Love Stuart Barnes!


All the reviews describe this book as inventive and incandescent. For me, it is more beautiful and lingering. There are phrases that I will long remember, words that are now part of my lexicon and ideas that I will adopt as my own. Easy to see why he won the 2015 Thomas Shapcott Prize for Poetry.
