‘The Best Australian Poems 2010 vibrates with correspondences. The images in some poems are reflected in others … until the individual poems begin to read like stanzas in some epic story of this country.’—Robert Adamson
Selected by one of Australia’s most acclaimed poets, this inspired collection captures the richness and scope of present-day Australian verse. It features innovative and exciting poems – many published here for the first time – from our best-known poets as well as daring and insightful works from rising stars.
Together they create a lively sense of conversation, of voices criss-crossing the continent, exploring the many themes that animated and inspired the nation’s poets in 2010.
