AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Emery examines the teaching of poetry in schools with particular reference to the New South Wales Higher School Certificate. In order to advance the appreciation of poetry, Emery suggests 'if we [poets] can work in collaboration with teachers to make their task easier rather than impose another imperative on them, perhaps we can make a future generation as comfortable with a book of poems as they are with a newspaper or football.'
