Prose poetry is a resurgent literary form in the English-speaking world and has been rapidly gaining popularity in Australia. Cassandra Atherton and Paul Hetherington have gathered a broad and representative selection of the best Australian prose poems written over the last fifty years.
The Anthology of Australian Prose Poetryincludes numerous distinguished prose poets—Jordie Albiston, joanne burns, Gary Catalano, Anna Couani, Alex Skovron, Samuel Wagan Watson, Ania Walwicz and many moremdash;and documents prose poetry’s growing appeal over recent decades, from the poetic margins to the mainstream.
This collection reframes our understanding not only of this dynamic poetic form, but of Australian poetry as a whole.
