Networked Language — Culture and history in Australian poetry

By Philip Mead

A revelation in literary criticism, Philip Mead's Networked Language offers absorbing new perspectives on Australian poetry and its cultural life. This study presents new ways of understanding Australian poetry, drawing on an equal fascination with the artifice of poetry and the complexity of culture. It is about the ways poetry changes in relation to its social, political and historical contexts, the way poetic communities and the readerships of poetry have changed through history, and continue to change in the present.

Mead's scholarly tentacles go very deep and his insights are seriously new. This book will be most valuable, and will last.
