Poems by Jack Davis

The poems of indigenous playwright, poet and activist Jack Davis (1917-2000) are significant for their clarity, beauty and ability to impart an indigenous point of view through a Western medium. Reacting to cultural differences and restrictions often imposed by white society, Davis sought to reclaim his people’s culture and history, fighting for existence, land and rights. His poems reflect survival, identity and inclusion.

The Quiet River is in five parts and begins with a call to country, connecting land and sky. A women’s only choir is used throughout to reflect the association of the Emu with the mother.
