Notes

  • Epigraph: Secure among their towering junk the wise and powerful congregate fitting old shapes to old ideas, rocked by their classical harmonies in living sleep. - Gwen Harwood, 'New Music'
  • Introduction by R. H. and T. W. S. 'The aim of this book is to clarify the accomplishments of Australian poetry in breaking fresh ground during the past decade, particularly since 1960....This is the first time such a wide selection of this new poetry has been brought together in one volume which includes no poems by the accepted hierarchy.'

Works about this Work

Francis Webb and the 1960s Toby Davidson , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 27 no. 1 2013; (p. 19-24)
After seven years in England, Francis Webb (1925-1973) flew back to Australia in November 1960. While his English experience was a chequered one characterized by various experiences of institutionalization, his final four years in the Norfolk region permitted him some freedom of movement and creative inspiration through the area's medieval roots, which for the poet were also ancestral, his great-grandfather hailing from Yarmouth. Here, Davidson traces Webb's physical and poetic return to Australia through biographical sources, including newly published accounts by his friend Sr. Pauline Fitz-Walter and his direct influence on two Generation of 68 luminaries, Bruce Beaver (1928-2004) and Robert Adamson (1943-).' (Editor's abstract)
Pam Brown’s Sydney Poetry in the 70s : In Conversation with Corey Wakeling Corey Wakeling (interviewer), 2012 single work interview
— Appears in: Cordite Poetry Review , 1 May vol. 38 no. 0 2012;
'Pam Brown is not only one of Australia's most prolific and important poets writing today, but also one of our richest archives on the history of late twentieth century Australian poetry. Since this is Cordite's Sydney issue, I thought an interview with her might evince a valuably multifarious image of, perhaps, Australia's most speedily shifting poetic landscape. In particular, as a contemporary Australian poetic history of the late twentieth century stems in part from poets closely associated with the city, it only made sense to ask Pam Brown, Sydney avant-garde collaborator, instigator, publisher and poet. Author of 16 books and 10 chapbooks, Brown has lived most of her life in Sydney, and now lives with her partner in the suburb of Alexandria. As well as offer new understandings of a period thoroughly historicised, I hoped Brown's personal recollections of the formative 1970s would illuminate the significance of those small press and handmade initiatives of the past that Astrid Lorange sees as 'non-causal' and 'monadic' in her Jacket2 archival commentary. Naturally, I was not disappointed.' (Author's introduction)
