9781740669108: 100 Australian Poems Of Love & Loss

Poetry, we are often told these days, is obsolete. Yet there are two situations in particular that awaken the dormant yearning for "memorable speech," as one popular definition of poetry describes it. One is a wedding and the other is a funeral. This collection, edited by acclaimed poet Jamie Grant, provides the words to mark these occasions in an Australian context. Ranging from the early 19th century to the present day, this moving anthology roams the dark, ecstatic, funny, mournful moments we experience during love and loss. Readers will discover that poetry is not, after all, as irrelevant and obsolete as modern society would have us believe.
