Praise for The Best Australian Poems 2014

‘Geoff Page’s collection of the best poems of 2014 serves only to underscore how essential to a properly reflexive and self-aware culture the writing and reading of poetry is.’ —Weekend Australian


‘The list of contributors tends to read like a Who’s Who of Australian poetry – Robert Adamson, Judith Beveridge, Peter Goldsworthy, Les Murray, David Malouf, Bruce Dawe, John Tranter, Clive James…is this the editor being lazy or is it testament to the longevity of Australian poets. I think it’s the latter. And it’s wonderfully familiar to see these names again.’ —Courier Mail


‘There is eloquence aplenty in this fine collection.’ —Australian Book Review


‘The breadth of work, combined with the accessibility of many of the poems, make it a perfect introduction to Australian poetry.’ —Good Reading Magazine


‘[A] glorious anthology’ —Launceston Examiner
