Notes

  • Editor's note: 'Introduction...Youngstreet Poets, a Sydney group...its members (twenty or so) meet monthly in each other's houses and read one poem for group comment....As a bi-annual culmination of their activities Youngstreet Poets have recently begun to publish an anthology of their best work edited by a more established poet unconnected with the group.' Geoff Page (pp.5-6).
