    One thought on “Propaganda Monkeys - Twenty Poems From My Twenties: 1996 - 2006

    1. Casey Kiser

      Reading this gem after 'Two Beat Newbie', 'Matrix Visions' and 'Rhyme and Rebellion', I am pleased to say that his style is consistent with the important things in life: fun, wit, humor, truth, mind-fuckery and middle fingers in the air to politics. We could use a few more middle fingers. But that would be weird so instead, we got Harry! Yay! I highly recommend this collection as I'm still reading and digesting it myself. My head is spinning from 'Fly-Dragon'. That really got me, idk whyFull rev [...]

      I took to Harry Whitewolf’s poetry as soon as I read his collection New Beat Newbie last year. He’s what you might call a protest poet, except that the label seems trite. He uses short lines and phrases to build up poems with a rhythmic, insistent structure. The results stay in your mind, along with the message – which is usually a political comment or a sideways look at some weirdness of the modern world.This collection of poems written in his 20s, between 1996 and 2006, shows him develop [...]

    3. James Morcan

      (The one and only) Whitewolf dedicates the book to "the ghosts of his past" and when reading this collection of easily digestible poems it does really seem as if the author/poet is attempting to bury the hatchet.Having read Whitewolf's other books, the thought patterns in Propaganda Monkeys are not quite as sophisticated. But that's to be expected as the author was younger here and presumably in the earlier stages of his journey as a poet (not to mention as a person). However, there's something [...]

    4. Rebecca Gransden

      This short collection is direct and smattered with unreconstructed youth. This is stuff of yesterday and of the ages. There is a courage in sharing without camouflage, without dressing in complexity or obfuscation. Here Whitewolf makes clearly timed commentary on themes including frustration with authority, reflections on love, dark days and moods and the limitations of language itself.It is tempting to breeze though this, the words deceptively undemanding at first, but they do weave and worm an [...]

    5. Leo Robertson

      Mr Whitewolf does a wonderful thing where his poems are so openly from the heart, so simple in their message and emotions that he almost goads you into scoffing at him. In which case, who is the real fool for rejecting such openness, aching compassion and invitation to take up arms and fight back against whatever towering power he chooses to question with- GASP!- logic?

    6. Rupert Dreyfus

      Another fantastic, if not timeless collection of poems from Whitewolf which make good use of his ability to flow like a great jazz song. This time they're often more introspective although his later themes of social justice and activism can still be found. For example there's a fantastic poem called Push Bush which is a great anti-Iraq War poem asking us: 'who sold the weapons anyway?' The Knack of Slack Black is probably my favourite poem in this collection just because of its rawness. Other fa [...]

      If you are new to poetry then this is the place to start, Harry Whitewolf's poems are written in such a way you can instantly tell the pace and just what he is getting at. From Politics, shopping, love, red wine and phone shape it's all here in this collection. I am always amazed how anybody can write a poem, I can see how you would go about writing a story but it blows my mind how you start with a poem.Each time I read one of these poems I would go "Yep that's my favourite", next poem would be [...]
