Barbara De Franceschi refers to herself as an ‘arid zone’ poet living as she does in the remote city of Broken Hill. This second edition of Strands is an expanded version, adding sixteen new poems to a poetry collection packed with imagination and vigorous language, by a poet experienced in both life and words. Barbara captures the taste and colour of her desert environment; the reader gets to know the poet through subtle knowing poems about relationships, her spiritual bond with the outback and unique insights into those we live among and with, written in everyday language that is refreshing, bright and inventive.
