Celebrating the vibrancy and force of Australian poetry today, guest editor John Tranter, one of Australia's most important poets, brings his experience as an anthologist to this selection of 40 poems first published in Australian literary journals in 2006. Tranter has put together a rich selection of powerful verse that ranges from elegant meditations to rapid sketches and social commentaries. Broad in its variety of poets and poetic styles, the collection evokes the worlds of art and language and wrestles with the joys and sorrows of daily life, providing poetic insight into Australians' views of the world.
