A NEW GENERATION, A LANDMARK ANTHOLOGY
Australian poetry has never looked so energetic and vital. Thirty Australian Poets celebrates a new generation and includes a wonderful diversity of voices and styles – from traditional forms re-imagined to the experimental and avant-garde, from exquisite lyricism to wild feats of intellect and imagination.
This groundbreaking anthology captures the spirit of a generation that has made the renaissance of Australian poetry impossible to ignore.
'Freed from the need for strict form, there is a surprising amount of rhyme and formality in this lively collection . . . And look at the range of characters you meet in these poems: Patrick White, John Forbes, John Milton, John Lewis, Krishna, Hamlet, Mallarmé, god, Mother Doubt, the Queen of Sheba, Groucho Marx, Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, André Citroën, the Holy Spirit, the Fried-Egg Plant, ectoplasm, Ray Martin, a sibyl, the Sibyl, Doctor Who, the Aztecs and Daffy Duck.  What more could you want?'
