AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Welcome to Australian Poetry Journal 7.2 – ‘work’, published with the support of the Australia Council for the Arts. Guest-editors Benjamin Laird and Cassandra Atherton have written a fascinating introduction on the provocation of the theme, this single word – work! – and the multiplicity of poetic responses to it: “We are reminded in putting this volume together that the intersection between ‘work’ and ‘poetry’ is, itself, a work in progress, and one that continues to build momentum.”' (Jacinta Le Plastrier : Online introduction)


  • Only literary material by Australian authors individually indexed. Other material in this issue includes:
