Poetic Impulse

Anthony Lawrence, Tru Dowling

Anthony Lawrence’s work is described as electric storytelling, deeply felt, driven by curiosity, forensically observed, linguistically precise. This most distinguished of Australian poets talks with Tru Dowling about the “headwaters” of poetic inspiration. How has he learned to unlock the words to best capture the meaning? Do emotions dictate form? Is there ever a perfect poem?
