Guest Editor Judith Beveridge, one of Australia’s leading poets, has produced a highly satisfying and stimulating addition to The Best Australian Poetry series. In making her selection of the best 40 poems from Australia’s literary journals, Beveridge – one of Australia’s leading poets – has searched for poems that enact ‘a serious showdown between the word and the poet’. Passionate, vigorous and filled with visitations and mysterious narratives, The Best Australian Poetry 2006 is the liveliest gathering of Australian poetry.About the Author Judith Beveridge has published three books of poetry. Her most recent collection is Wolf Notes (Giramondo, 2003) which won the Judith Wright Calanthe Award for Poetry and the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Poetry in 2004.
