Poets With A Capital P

by
July 1983, no. 52

John and Dorothy Colmer have produced Pattern and Voice (Macmillan, $10.95 pb, 234 pp), an anthology of verse which will be of interest to all teachers and students of poetry. It has a blend of classic and contemporary poetry and includes many Australian poets.

The soft cover may turn to rag in the hands of Year Nine boys, but for $10.95 you get 233 pages of poetry. It is divided into sections such as ‘Satire and Social Comment’, ‘Ballads’, ‘The Poet’s Eye’, ‘Elegiac Verse’, etc., which all school anthologies seem to consider necessary.
