A multicultural anthology of poetry
edited by Ken Watson
We are a multicultural society. The 43 poets whose work is presented here come from cultures which have so richly contributed, through immigration, to Australia in the period since World War II: Italy, Greece, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, the Czech Republic. Included also are poets from Asia: from India, China, Vietnam. This new edition includes poets from several Middle Eastern countries and Turkey, bringing countries and cultures represented to 21. The range of Australian poets has been expanded to include additional Aboriginal poets, and poets born elsewhere and influenced by other cultures, now writing in Australia. We have also included a group of Australian poets strongly influenced by Asia. Poetry helps us understand the nuances of our diverse cultural heritage.
NOTE This edition contains all the poems from the first edition listed in the 2015 - 2020 HSC Prescribed Text List
