Modelled on classical epics such as Virgil's Aeneid and Pope's Dunciad, The Mundiad is a mock epic poem celebrating the conception and birth of little Mundia, her heroic escape from her parents, medical staff and hospital, and journey into the real world. A world of deranged superstars, climate-change deniers, rogue states, multimedia extravaganzas, political bullshit, creepy talkback demagogues, financial crises, child soldiers, happy idiots, genetic engineering, death camps, pornographers and more.
Erudite, witty and deeply weird, The Mundiad is a blistering parody of the contemporary world from one of Australia's most unique literary imaginations.
