In the age of Facebook and Twitter and The Internet in general, sometimes books get a little left behind. In particular, poetry isn’t something people make time for anymore. Geoff Page is doing his part to counteract that with his latest book, 60 Classic Australian Poems. Geoff Page provides a brief but insightful commentary into 60 pivotal Australian poems from classics right up till the modern era. This book has it all from traditional rhyming verse to sonnets and beyond. Featured authors include David Malouf, A.B. ‘Banjo’ Patterson, Henry Lawson, Dame Mary Gilmore and Clive James. A lovely gift, trade paperback, $34.95.
