AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This bilingual anthology is a collection of some 150 short poems written post-World War II from 57 well-known Australian writers. It is divided generally into those writing before and after 1960, with each year serving as a marker to the influence of 'post-war affluence and admass techniculture'. A general theme of the collection involves the variousness of the experience of life through perceptions and descriptions of people and places.
