Preface to the Seventies
There are no links on this page.
This section features parts of the February 1970 issue of Poetry Australia, the ‘Preface to the Seventies’ issue, guest-edited by John Tranter, who was 26 at the time. He persuaded Grace Perry, the general editor of the magazine, to allow him to collect a group of poems and essays that reflected the newer currents in Australian poetry. Not long after the issue was published he left for two years in Singapore. It was his first of many anthologies of poetry. See the Contents Page of this issue of JPR for other sections relating to Poetry Australia; most of issue 32 of the magazine is reproduced here.
