Michelle Cahill’s poems are astonishingly rich and new, their feet so deeply planted in timeless myth. This book is a truly profound example of the power of poetry to absorb and transcend our merely secular selves, filling the reader with multiple delights. Our literature is immediately changed by Vishvarupa.
An ABC radio program on Vishvarupa was broadcast on 6 September 2016, on Radio National’s Earshot program, as part of the Confluence Australia India Arts festival: it was produced by Prithvi Varatharajan, a poet scholar from the University of Queensland. Listen to it here.
