AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Australians are good at poetry, the way that we’re good at comedy. Does this mean that we’re good at the mug’s game of pursuing an art in which there is no money, only the fame that waits on a cultivated obscurity? Does it mean that we’re good at shaping words into more or less memorable patterns of sound in the way we’re good at comically highlighting our own ridiculousness?' (Introduction)
