Works about this Work

Introduction to the Penguin Book of Australian Verse Harry Payne Heseltine , 1972 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Penguin Book of Australian Verse 1972; (p. 27-53)

Explores the passage of Australian poetry from 1788 to the early 1970s, discussing why the anthology focuses on 'articulate, personal poetry', and is weighted toward the fruitful period after 1930. Highlights important themes and concerns of Australian poetry - the quest for an Antipodean Eden, the pursuit of Romantic idealism within a strongly secular culture, and the need to define an Australian vision and identity against English culture - and assesses the individual contributions of major poets.
