Through a combination of breadth of coverage and in-depth analysis, Dennis Haskell and Hillary Fraser bring together some of the most stimulating Australian poetry now being written.
Wordhord presents the work of more than sixty poets, both new and established, writing in Western Australia during the 1980s. Offering a broad range of poets and poetry, the editors also specifically highlight ten poets, whose poetry receives individual critical analysis.
Wordhord is an accessible, varied and colourful selection—poetry which strongly reinforces the ever-growing reputation of contemporary writing from Australia’s west coast. Dennis Haskell and Hillary Fraser provide an exciting picture of Western Australian poetry in the 1980s, and through their lively and informed essays suggest ways of considering its nature and concerns.
