LUKE DAVIES          FOUR PLOTS FOR MAGNETS

Luke Colour Cliff

A reprint of his legendary 1982 book with new essays by the poet and the original publisher – and 53 extra previously uncollected poems

Four Plots for Magnets was a slim volume of 13 poems published in an edition of 300 by poet S. K. Kelen at Glandular Press in Sydney in 1982. Today it is one of the rarest and most collectable poetry artefacts of the early eighties.

Pitt Street Poetry is proud to make Four Plots for Magnets available in a new edition with a foreword by the poet describing those heady days , an afterword by the original publisher S. K. Kelen, now a well-regarded poet in his own right, and 53 exuberant previously uncollected Luke Davies poems
