The Fremantle Press Anthology of Western Australian Poetry is a comprehensive survey of the state’s poets from the 19th century to today.

Featuring work from 134 poets, and including the work of many WA Indigenous poets, this watershed anthology brings together the poems that have contributed to and defined the ways that Western Australians see themselves.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘… this large, beautifully presented volume is a must for all readers of WA poetry and a wonderful introduction for those with less knowledge.’ writingWA

‘… [an] indispensable collection.’ West Australian

‘… there is no doubt that the state’s uniqueness is captured in this extensive, though tightly edited, selection … For anyone interested in the highways and byways of Australian poetry generally – and in the development of our poetic culture over the past couple of centuries (or sixty millennia) – Kinsella and Ryan’s anthology is mandatory reading.’ Australian Book Review

‘the Anthology contains decades of stories, impressions, threads and voices that knot together in ways that invite further teasing and  unravelling, within or without the confines of chronological enquiry. It is a valuable source for both students of history and enthusiasts of poetry, and an excellent introduction to the work of a broad range of Western Australian poets.’ Limina

ERRATUM
Please note that the poem ‘Wheatbelt’ by Caroline Caddy, which appears on p. 219 of the anthology, is incomplete. The poem can be viewed in full by clicking on Sample Chapter under the cover image.
