Sydney:Angus and Robertson,1964Z3908121964anthology poetry Editor's Introduction: The anthology covers 'from 1930 onwards'... And, lastly, of course, an anthology of this kind should attempt to give as wide a picture as possible, consistent with quality, of Australian poetry in the period. That I have certainly tried to do; but without losing sight of the principle that it should be enjoyable. ... Douglas Stewart (q.v.) (xxi-xxxv).Sydney:Angus and Robertson,1964
'Judith Wright's own definitive selection of her poetry, covering the best and most memorable of her remarkable oeuvre.
'From the elegant and moving precision of the first collection, The Moving Image (1946), to the political passion of Phantom Dwelling (1985), Wright's poetry speaks with intelligence and courage - and gracefully sensuous imagery.
'Forty years of poetic production from Australia's best-loved poet.' (Publication summary)

This is not just because of her poems and her activism (textual and otherwise) but because she deprecated her poems in favour of activism. Nothing makes a poet more popular than denying poetry. But an icon is an icon is an icon, and can be moved about the temple without too much trouble.'
