On the Road to Nowhere: Revisiting Samuel Butler’s Erewhon


Reviews & Comments:

  1. Nicholas Reid. Reid's Reader (5/9/16):

    The other most overtly literary excursion is Jack Ross’s “On the Road to Nowhere”, setting a reading of landscape against Samuel Butler’s Erewhon (and labouring long over the question of why Butler kept changing his description of the statues that guard Butler’s imagined land.)

Disorder and Early Sorrow



Reviews & Comments:

  1. Tony Green, "99 Ways into New Zealand Poetry,” by Paula Green and Harry Ricketts. Accumulations: words as they come to hand (November 3, 2010):

    For whatever reason Jack Ross, who is published pretty well everywhere, is offered as an alternative experimenter to Leigh Davis. With the supposed advantage that his work has heart, rather than being cerebral.

Reviews & Comments:

  1. Anna Jackson. The Dominion Post Weekend (24/2/2007) 19.

    Poetry by Bill Manhire is showcased along with works by Jack Ross and Olivia Macassey, exciting poets who might usually be considered on the fringes of New Zealand poetry. Here, their poetry seems to belong at the centre, the unsettled mode of the Antipodean gothic where it is most at home. There may be readers who buy this book for this poetry and the art reproductions even if they plan on skipping the essays. …

  2. Andrew Paul Wood. "Black Celebration." NZ Listener (March 3-9, 2007):

    Yes, there is overwrought poetry: Olivia Macassey and Jack Ross (I probably would have picked Richard Reeve for his high anxiety and low humour) ... Gothic NZ is worth it for the good bits, but all too often is more camp than gothic. Don’t expect to find anything nasty in the woodshed.

  3. Tim Corballis & Ingrid Horrocks. "Our dark secrets." NZ Books (Spring 2007): 14.

    Our “dark secret” might be the violence of our colonial past (Misha Kavka and Sarah Shieff), unacknowledged poverty (Martin Edmond), the punitive treatment and pervasiveness of depressive illness (David Craig, in one of the most nuanced pieces in the collection), or the fragmented condition of postmodern self and society (Jack Ross). Surprisingly, there is little discussion of the loneliness of living in a small, sparsely populated country, something that might amount to the sublime of isolation. Are we finally over this? There is also little mention of domestic violence or child abuse, recently described as New Zealand’s “dark secret” by Silvia Cartwright.

  4. Ann Hardy. "Small-town Melancholy." JNZl 25 (2007): 178-81.

    To reinforce their case, which is elaborated from slender preexisting evidence, the editors have also made the unusual move of including other material which performs rather than analyses the gothic. The photographs have the most impact: deadpan, spooky images by Yvonne Todd here find a particularly productive context ... There are also poems by Bill Manhire, Jack Ross and Olivia Macassey which explore themes of ‘disorder and early sorrow’ (p. 76) including the lingering pain/pleasure of contemplating vanished lives. In its mixed-media richness this is at times a sensuous and intriguing book which collages some of the best of New Zealand writing and art.

Reviews & Comments:

  1. Alistair Paterson. "Books and Magazines in Brief." Poetry NZ 21 (2000): 86.

    Grouped together as it is, their poetry makes an attractive volume of a consistent and pleasing quality.

  2. Bernard Gadd. JAAM 14 (2000) 104-6.

    Ross’s poems have the effect of the post-modern. Places evoke crisp images, memories, fragments of thought, literary recollections which, set side by side, successfully create imaginative poems crammed with surprises and interest. ‘Travel Sonnets’ is a sequence of eight sonnets in the sense of having fourteen lines, using some rhyme, and retaining the personal lyric focus of the original genre. Perhaps the most successful poems are ‘Ashley Gorge’ and ‘Orpheus in the Bays’ – which reads a little like a rewrite of Alistair Campbell’s ‘The Return’, though here ‘Bobbing downstream, at peace, transfigured / Orpheus side-strokes to sea.’ The concentration upon place makes this a cohesive set of poems.
