“Anthony António’s Passage of Time has selected poems of longing and hope. It contains bracing poetry that offers a host of pleasures and rich and briny atmospheres filled with burr and bristle for the ear and thoughts. The poems show a passion for love and a restless eye for the exact and scary details of one of the most essential voices in contemporary poetry. They reveal a man haunted and haunting, beautiful and brutal, ancient and immediate—capable of tricking ghosts from the most innocuous and familiar shadows.Behind each word and intricate sentence, there is a hidden truth, a mystically charged world, a modern life of forked storms, of hard, clear music. The muscularity and toughness of the verses is counterpointed everywhere by a deep tenderness and longing. The poems are increasingly compelling and vast in their embrace, their dark and lustrous landscapes fully inhabited, fully haunted by the ghosts of present and past.â€

The author was born in Portugal with the name António José A.R. Milheiro and emigrated to Australia in 1982. He uses his first name as his pen name, Anthony António, which defines him as being both Australian and Portuguese. He has worked as an architect for well-reputed design firms in Sydney, Australia, and internationally. His interest in the environment and social-political matters took him to write ‘Corpitalism’: Politics, Politicians and ‘the Others’, as well as ‘The Fourth Race-Towards the Singularity of Indifference’, and by attending university in matters of social-political sciences, current affairs and law, he was equipped with a better understanding of life and human relations.
