    'Australian Love Poems 2013 is a who’s who of Australian poets. It containing 200 poems from 173 Australian poets including well known poets Les Murray, Judith Beveridge, Cate Kennedy, Robert Gray, Paul Kelly and exciting new poetic talent.

    'This is how we do love, how we fall in and out of it, yearn and turn and hurt in it, and how love leads us beyond ourselves. And this is how we write love: in sonnets, of course, pantoums, villanelles, haiku, ghazals, prose poems, free verse and aubades.

    'The richness of love found in Australian Love Poems 2013 claims Australia as a poetic nation and a nation of love.' (Publisher's blurb)
