Epigraph: Let's get one thing straight. You're behind the counter because you have to work for $6 an hour. I'm on this side asking to see the good jewellery because I make considerably more. (Reported remark by US National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice to shop assistant who had pulled out some costume jewellery on seeing her.)

With insight and insider knowledge, poet Geoff Page emphasises the contribution made by the notable generation of Australian poets who emerged during and just after World War II. It includes several contemporary poems which are likely to become classics in the near future. Each poem is followed by a short, lively essay discussing its merits and suggesting why it might be considered a classic.'
