'A very fine anthology, with exemplary introductions. It is refreshing to see how much has been done so well.' - Peter Pierce Wide in scope and bold in ambition, this exciting anthology covers the range of Australian poetic achievement, from early colonial verse through to contemporary work, with a strong recognition of Indigenous voices. This collection brings together great and familiar names with those that deserve better recognition. Including valuable introductory essays by John Kinsella, and biographical notes for all the poets, The Penguin Anthology of Australian Poetrypresents the full measure of Australian poetic talent in all its richness and diversity.
