Australian Poetry Journal Volume 4 Issue 2

In the latest APJ, read about the tension between politics and poetics, topics from the far left to the far right and the links between ideology and ideal words.

Leading off in his witty essay, Mitchell Welch reflects on the place of poetry in Australian political life. Surprising though it may seem, some Australian political figures have honed their poetic skills while holding power.

Editor Michael Sharkey: “APJ4.2 showcases poets you’ve heard of and many you’ll wish you knew better.”
