    Description

    This book of popular verse includes many poems that readers will remember from childhood, perhaps from school or even recited by family members.

    Jim Haynes has gone to many original sources - old magazines, manuscripts, old books now out of print - to compile a collection that is not just a compendium of well-loved and often brilliant verse, but a portrait of Australia during the 19th and 20th century.

    Verse is more than just pleasant, jingling rhyme. It can document history, heroics and current events, tell stories, comment on social issues and satirise. At best it can be a subtle and satisfying form of literature, but its primary purpose is entertainment - whether for reading, writing, performing or listening.

    Like its predecessor 'An Australian Heritage Of Verse', this book features hundreds of classic poems from Henry Lawson, Banjo Paterson, Will Ogilvie, Victor Daley, CJ Dennis and Leon Gellert, alongside contemporary writers such as Denis Kevans, Colin Wilson, Bruce Simpson, Ted Egan and Rupert McCall.
