Abstract/Summary John Forbes (1950-1998) was a totem favourite of later 20th century poetry in Australia. In this presentation, 2017 Fryer Library Fellow, Dr Duncan Hose spoke of his pursuit of the daemon or "literary ghostmark" of John Forbes through personal papers that remain charged with the aura and charism of the poet some 20 years after his passing. Throughout the term of his Fellowship, Dr Hose delved into the Fryer Library's collection of Forbes' manuscripts that include correspondence, notes and drafts. Dr Hose spoke about the uncanny aspects of seeking out the daemon, or composite metaphysical forces, that drives a poetic practice characterised as "pagan sermons" within this modern, secular era.
