Favourite Australian Poems - Various

Child & Associates, 1987, Hardback.
Condition: Very Good. Light knock to the foot of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the cover: “At some time in our lives most of us have come in contact with our heritage of Australian bush verse. Our blood has stirred to the urgent rhythm of a Paterson poem; our hearts have opened to Lawsori’s interpretation of bush life; and we’ve laughed along with C. J, Dennis and John O’Brien.

Favourite Australian Poems is a miniature treasury of verse from these writers and others of similar stature. The poems included all reflect the poets’ love of the Australian bush — its savagery, its harshness, and its contrasting beauty and splendour — and also the poets’ feelings for the people who lived and worked in the bush.

Beautifully illustrated with Ron Driscoll’s subtle and evocative pencil drawings, Favourite Australian Poems will prove a valued addition to the shelves of those who treasure the works of our best loved Australian poets..”
