Australian Poetry Since 1788

Although technically there was no ‘Australia’ back in 1788, this comprehensive anthology takes us from our British roots all the way through to modern times. Edited by poets Geoffrey Lehmann and Robert Gray, this collection includes over 1000 poems from 170 different authors. Each author’s work is prefaced by a short biography and often includes humourous details.

Many different styles of poetry are represented in this lovely hardback book that would undoubtedly make a lovely addition to any collection.
