Australian poetry

Importantly, colonial formations of impenetrable wilderness, Australian poetry pastoral districts, and privileged town and city centres are now fantasies, for the most part, given the vast majority of residence lying in suburbia, the sustained dominance of telecommunications over the discourse of the Australian public sphere, the surrendered economic and regional sovereignty of the rural to the international trade interests of a suburbanised majority, and the socio-economic and cultural generalisation categorising national belonging for subjects living thousands of kilometres away from each other.

Therefore, the supposedly direct encounter with a suburban identity seems to me to involve deception as a putatively direct engagement with an ambient condition. What kind of document to this significant time-period does CAP constitute, and what bearing does it have on the question of an Australian contemporary?

As a cultural problem Australian poetry poetry, a suburban condition is at once impossible to avow and ever present. I feel two radically different Australian poetry complex reservations about the idea that poetry could be more suburban, however, and thereby more relevant to a majoritarian audience in Australia.

Adopting it or otherwise is a moot point. Students will be guided in composing both individual and group poems. Most importantly, how do we now read Australia differently? No one really likes it, but everyone knows that it is the only place where competing discourses collide on the same national stage.

Yet, this post-war economy called suburbia has in fact been the stage of cultural turmoil, self-parody, and contemporary crisis. The literary in Australia does not require a suburban intervention as it lies aloof in some urban ivory tower; from the most challenging to the most conventional, the suburban sits prestigiously at the table of Australian literary subjects.

In the twenty-first century, city and country are defined by cultural logics of suburban desire. Of course, not everyone lives in the suburbs, nor all poets. What new forms of reading has contemporary poetry inspired in this country?

There I begin talking about poets collected in this anthology. Given the attention brought to the subject in Australian literary scholarship in the s, especially by Andrew McCann and McCooey, and renewed interest at present in recent works of scholarship, the category of the literary itself in Australia means some negotiation of the suburban.

However, for reasons I will explain, the mainstream of Australian culture is embedded in a pervasively suburban condition. All programs focus on high student engagement and high expectation.
