Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195537696, Paperback)

Australian Poets and Their Works offers an alphabetical listing of all the major Australian poets from the nineteenth century to the present day. Derived from the second edition of The Oxford Companion to Australian Literature, it retains all of its entries (800 in all) on poets, collections of verse, famous poems, folk songs, prizes, journals, and anthologies. These have been updated where necessary, ensuring that the Reader's Guide offers an expansive and fully up-to-date summary of Australian poetry in the 1990s. In addition, it contains various extended thematic articles on key aspects such as the Jindyworobaks, the Ern Malley hoax, and the so-called Generation of 1968. An indispensable aid for students, poets, teachers and poetry lovers, Australian Poets and Their Works is intended to summarize and highlight the variety, individuality and accomplishments of a literary form in which Australians have long excelled.
