From colonial origins to vibrant metropolis, Sydney has been portrayed with great liveliness and precision by its poets. This anthology’s range extends from the foot of the Blue Mountains through the suburban heartlands to the works and days of the harbour and the beach, incorporating numerous – and often conflicting – interpretations and images of the city. The first collection of Sydney-specific poems for twenty years, this book includes not only such classics as Kenneth Slessor’s Five Bells and favourites like Clancy of the Overflow, but also generous selections of the surprisingly strong contemporary poetry as well as older verse tracing back to the town’s birth.Â
