AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The author argues that the 'isolation of Australian poetry and poetics has evolved more from choice than from circumstances, and its quality comes about from very specific relationships between a consciousness of the uniqueness of the Australlian landscape, and the enormity of disppossessing Indigenous peoples whose relatiohship with that land is so specific, varied, and complex.'
