AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Charles Harpur was the first Australian-born poet of any distinction. He first gave vivid pictures of the lonely Australian bushland. He was followed by the once famous Richard Henry Horne, who lives now chiefly by reason of the fact that he procured recognition for Kendall in his lifetime.'

'Although Bernard O'Dowd, Christopher Brennan, Mary Gilmore, Hugh McCrae, Shaw Neilson, Furnley Maurice, Leon Gellert, and, more recently, young poets like Kenneth Slessor, Pamela Travers, Edgar Holt, Bertram Higgins, John L. Glascock, and Peter Hopgood, have contributed, each in his individual way to the storehouse of Australian poetry its full flowering is still awaited.'
