M.T.C. Cronin & Peter Boyle : How does a man
who is dead reinvent his body?

Subtitled The Belated Love Poems of Thean Morris Caelli—a neglected 20th Century poet—this collection represents the merging of two contemporary Antipodean poets into the consciousness of a mysterious third imaginatively inhabited by many. Within the broadly surrealist tradition of experimentation and co-operative writing the collaborative Thean of mixed age, gender and genealogy channels polyphonous voices into an inclusive and complex vision. In this Opus #1, s/he participates in a rich diversity of dialogues: between a Japanese woman and her ghost-lover; between flawed dreams and their fracture into waking; between the individual speaker and the poet(s) he or she becomes only when heard or read. How Does a Man Who is Dead Reinvent His Body? is a remarkable departure for two of the finest poets from Australia's current middle generation.
