Works about this Work

Who's Afraid of Poetic Invention? Anthologising Australian Poetry in the Twenty-First Century A.J. Carruthers , 2018 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 17 no. 2 2018;

'There has been a rich history of anthologising Australian poetry this far into the twenty-first century. This article claims that contemporary poetics, with a renewed focus on the recoprocal relation between cultural and linguistic inquiry, can rediscover alternative ways of reading the history of Australian avant-garde, inventive and experimental work. Considering several key anthologies published after the turn of last century, the article provides readings of both the frameworks the anthology-makers provide and the poems themselves, claiming that mark, trace and lexical segmentivities can already be read as social. It then proposes a new possibility for an experimental anthology that might bring these facets into lived praxis: the chrestomathy.' (Publication abstract)

— Review of Calyx : 30 Contemporary Australian Poets 2000 anthology poetry

'The subtitle of this anthology is slightly misleading in that it includes only poets who began to be published widely in the 1990s. One thing that Calyx obviously demonstrates, therefore, is the vibrancy of recent Australian poetry, the breadth and depth of recent talent and the considerable publishing opportunities which exist for new writers. The assurance and openness of much of the work reflects a sure sense of community and audience which it would be hard to find elsewhere. Calyx is further confirmation that Australian poetry has grown to worldwide prominence.' (Introduction)
