AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Australian Popular Songbook is a suite (though not strictly a sequence) of 28 sonnets, other 14 liners and related verse forms such as villanelles. Each poem is inspired by a popular Australian song from circa the 1880s through to 1980. The book also includes a group of mainly narrative poems inspired by places, mainly suburbs, in Melbourne, Sydney and in one case Wollongong.'--Provided by publisher.
