OverviewWhite Lines (Vertical) is a new collection of poetry by Marcelle Freiman. These moving poems highlight the poet's sensibility towards the complex, varied facets of identity and her perceptions of the world. Coming from a family whose generational identity is one of migration from Europe, this South African immigrant responds intently to Australia's landscape and its art, and to the intersections of these with personal and cultural memory. This is poetry that will engage the reader with an aesthetic and emotional understanding of what it is to live in the contemporary world.
