Riassunto: Mark O'Connor is one of Australian's best-known and most widely read poets, with twelve books published. He has been awarded a Fellowship by the Australia Council to write poetry covering the 2000 Olympic Games and to coincide with this, Dr. John Leonard, editor of several major collections of contemporary Australian poetry, has expertly collected the best of O'Connor's work over three decades. Dr. Leonard has commented: "He is that rare thing, a genuinely popular poet of real power and complexity."
These poems range widely over time and place, but the heart of the collection is the celebration of the uniqueness and diversity of Australian's environment, from desert to rainforest, mountains to coral reefs. With passion, humor and dedication to his craft, O'Connor has created a rich legacy of fine poetry.
