These three volumes, reprints of books published in the 1970s and 1980s, appear in the Art Box Series by Picaro Press. Reasonably priced, they will give contemporary readers a sense of the seedbed of Australian poetry a few decades ago. These volumes do just that. It would be hard to imagine a more eclectic selection of styles and approaches. Read together, they communicate the dynamics of the changes in poetry during those seminal decades.
