Foundation for Australian Literary Studies Monograph No. 8. 1982, Modern Australian Styles
AbstractPrepared as part of the Foundation for Australian Literary Studies monograph series, this monograph written by Mark O'Connor examines a cycle of boom and bust in Australian poetry as a means of approaching the question of why there is a perception of disillusionment with Australian poetry. O'Connor describes the conditions that led to an increase in the quantity of poems being produced in the late 1960s before looking at emergent poetry and how it fits into the broader historical narrative.
