Love-ancient and modern, ecstatic and mundane, sacred and profane-finds its Australian voices between the covers of this book. This important collection of poems displays the richness and variety of contemporary Australian poetry.
Here is larrikin love, ironic love and the understated love we inhabit. This is how we do love, how we fall in and out of it, yearn and turn and hurt in it, and how love leads us beyond ourselves. And this is how we write love: in sonnets, of course, pantoums, villanelles, haiku, ghazals, prose poems, free verse and aubades.
The rich love found in Australian Love Poems claims Australia as a poetic nation and a nation of love. Here's a wonderful review of Australian Love Poems from the top poetry journal in Canada, Arc Poetry Magazine.
