Lionel Fogarty (1958-) is a contemporary Australian poet from Queensland of Aboriginal background, largely considered to be the most important political poet working in Australia today. Blending English and native Aboriginal dialects in his work, his poetry has often seemed difficult and confronting to most readers.
His "complete works" will be released by Salt Publishing early next year (I think this volume is already out in Australia, and has been available for years).
Three of his poems can be read here.
While he doesn't appeal to me on any level (political/incendiary literature of all kinds bores me), he does sound important enough to be looked up at a future point. John Kinsella calls him the greatest living "Australian" poet. I find the quotation marks amusing. In the Dreamtime "Australia" doesn't exist, .
