dc.description.abstractFor those who grew up reading his dreamy, solipsistic sequences, Michael Dransfield met immediate needs. He expressed overtly the counter-cultural attitudes of the times, and portrayed the frustrations and elations of transition into one's twenties. He was the most convincing of the slash/dash lower-case poets, one whose experiments were not a plaything but the means to new meaning. Rereading him now, we meet a gifted but also indulged individual - a young man with his own country estate, a stash of opiates and a library of Romantic literature. His own portrait of himself to the world is of a doomed youth, a Dedalus of Darlinghurst, set 'to deify doubt'.en
