John Kinsella's daring new volume of poetry, The Divine Comedy, is set in the wheatbelt region of Western Australia. It comprises three books: Purgatorio: up close, Paradiso: rupture, and Inferno: leisure centre. The poet narrator takes the reader on a tour through the wonders of nature in its full regalia, resisting forces of damage and indifference that would see it destroyed. This is a book of hope and redemption that nonetheless faces up to the terrors and traumas in all of us, terrors and traumas we play out on the world, often unwittingly.
