Reflecting on Melbourne

“Here, in image and song, is Melbourne in all its multicultural and multitudinous, marvellous and malevolent glory. A super ram-load of poets ring the bell and, one-by-one,  show their Melbourne – from the city to the suburbs, from the Yarra to the Bay.  And if you need a break from the poets, gaze out the tram window at the images. Ever wondered where, in Melbourne, Jesus would have been crucified? Michael Donnelly’s etchings provide the answer: Chadstone shopping centre. Read this super tram of poetry and see why Melbourne is a City of Literature.” JOEL DEANE
