Dorothy Auchterlonie, in ordinary life Mrs Dorothy Green, was born in Sunderland, England and educated partly in that country and partly in Australia, at the University of Sydney, where she distinguished herself in English and in Oriental History. For some years she was a reader and journalist and news editor with the News Service of the Australian Broadcasting Commission. After her marriage to H. M. Green, she was for some time a housewife, and then in turn headmistress of a large girls' school in Queensland, lecturer in English at Monash University, and senior lecturer at the Australian National University. Her special interests are in drama, poetry, and English prose. The present volume is her first since the publication of Kaleidoscope in 1940, but in the intervening years she has continued to contribute verse to journals such as Meanjin, Quadrant, Southerly, and London Letters. Her poetry is marked by its reflective insight and its metaphysical passion on the one hand, and by its intense involvement in contemporary life and political events on the other. Though her output is small she has made her mark as one of the outstanding poets of her time and country.
