Titles included in this bundle
The Puncher and Wattmann Anthology of Australian Poetry ed. John Leonard
The rich diversity of Australian poetry stands in no need of makeovers or prescriptions. What will benefit it is attentive and brilliant readers, of whom John Leonard is without doubt one of its finest. — Martin Harrison
Motherlode: Australian Women’s Poetry 1986 - 2008 eds. Jennifer Harrison & Kate Waterhouse
Motherlode is the first major collection of Australian women’s poetry in over a decade. More than 120 poets share the telling of a very contemporary story of identity — how we see ourselves as, and in relation to, mothers, grandmothers and children
Out of the Box: Contemporary Australian Gay and Lesbian Poets eds. Michael Farrell & Jill Jones
The first contemporary book of its kind: poems by gay and lesbian poets writing now in the freedoms and dangers of the 21st century. Out of the Box features new poems by David Malouf and Dorothy Porter and introduces new poets Maria Zajkowski and Scott-Patrick Mitchell – not to mention the free ranging poets in between. Poems of love, violence, sex and experiment, with just enough everyday life to keep you grounded.
Harbour City Poems: Sydney in Verse 1788 - 2008 ed. Martin Langford
From colonial origins to vibrant metropolis, Sydney has been portrayed with great liveliness and precision by its poets. This anthology"s range extends from the foot of the Blue Mountains through the suburban heartlands to the works and days of the harbour and the beach, incorporating numerous – and often conflicting – interpretations and images of the city.
Contemporary Asian Australian Poets eds. Adam Aitken, Kim Cheng Boey & Michelle Cahill
..it is clear from the quality of the works collected that the project... is a thoughtful, sensitively realised one that seeks to go beyond mere representation to explore a beautifully ambiguous, ambivalent and therefore more exciting set of linguistic, historical and cultural possibilities.
