Jerilderies

Author(s): Toby Fitch; Pam Brown (Editor); Chris Edwards (Designed by)

Poetry

When Ned Kelly dictated his "Jerilderie Letter" in 1879, he created a legacy ripe for plunder. Cut, pasted and peppered with redactions in Toby Fitch's Jerilderies, the tangled syntax and rich vocabulary of Kelly's letter become "the spewy ground" of a bushy unconscious where phantom characters materialise, morph and dissolve - into riddles of economy and sexuality, class and cant. Brindling against law and order - "the man that blowed my brains out" - Jerilderies hits on the myth of discovering a found "native land".
