St Lucia:University of Queensland Press,2003Z10080482003collected work poetry (taught in 1 units)'This collection represents the full body of Gwen Harwood's poetry: all six published volumes, as well as most of her uncollected poems ... with an editorial introduction, and extensive notes providing background to particular poems or obscure references ... The poet's own biographical notes on the pseudonymous selves she adopted in her poems of the 1960s and 1970s add further value.' (Cover)St Lucia:University of Queensland Press,2003
'Gwen Harwood (1920-1995) is one of the best loved Australian poets of the twentieth century - and a fierce prankster, who published poems under half-a-dozen names and identities. By turns poignant, sensuous and mischievous, passionately musical, her poetry is marked by sure intelligence and a quicksilver, anti-authoritarian wit.
'This new selection of her poetry from 1943 to her death makes the full range of the work accessible for the first time to poetry-lovers in the northern hemisphere. With an introduction by the leading Harwood critic Gregory Kratzmann and the Australian poet Chris Wallace-Crabbe, who corresponded with Harwood, the selection includes hitherto little-known work along with poems which have become part of the central canon of Australian poetry.'
