Formatted Abstract/Summary
The Best Australian Poetry 2007 celebrates the vibrancy and force of poetry in Australia now.

Guest Editor John Tranter, one of Australia’s most important poets, brings his substantial reputation as an anthologist – as well as a great deal of style – to his selection of 40 poems first published in Australian literary journals in 2006. Tranter has put together a rich selection of powerful poems –elegant meditations, rapid sketches, social commentaries – that live inside the world of art and language, as well as poems deeply concerned with life as it is lived.

Broad in the variety of poets and poetic styles, The Best Australian Poetry 2007 is as surprising in its diversity as it is pleasurable to read.
