This chapter presents the reflections of poet Matt Simpson about Tasmania. In 1994 he was invited by Tim Thorne, the Australian poet and organiser of the Tasmanian Poetry Festival, to take up a poetry residency at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston, Tasmania. It also describes the collection, Cutting the Clouds Towards; the poems are divided into two sections — those written in England before the residency and those written during it.
