Besides, discussing the artistic and aesthetic aspects of Australian verse, these essays reflect on issues of national identity and representation, nature, space, environment, globalization and multiculturalism in the context of Australia. Some of the essays also bring to fore the comparative perspective of Australia and India as emerging multicultural / multiethnic nation in today's fast globalizing world.
