Berndt, Ronald M.  
Three Faces of Love. Traditional Aboriginal Song-poetry.

Publisher: Nelson [Melbourne, 1976].
130 p., index, color illus. Three Faces of Love brings to general readers the richness and originality of traditional Aboriginal erotic song poetry. In Professor Berndt's sensitive renderings the poems conjure up the haunting atmosphere of muted eroticism of the northeast Arnhem Landers' traditional songs, conveying in a very real sense a people's affection for, and oneness with, nature. They open up a whole new world of indigenous Australian literature, part of Australia's literary heritage." Stock #20194. Vg/ dj vg.
