Works about this Work

'The Fremantle Press Anthology of Western Australian Poetry' by John Kinsella and Tracy Ryan (eds) Geoff Page , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , April no. 390 2017;
'The need for this book is self-evident in a way that a similarly historical anthology for New South Wales or Victorian poetry would not be. From many perspectives, Perth is one of the most remote cities in the world and there is no doubt that the state’s uniqueness is captured in this extensive, though tightly edited, selection. Despite its comparable treatment of Aboriginal people, Western Australia’s nineteenth-century history (with its brief experience of convictism and its relatively late gold rush in the 1890s) is different from that of the eastern colonies, about which Western Australians continue to feel a mild, justified paranoia.'
