The Best Australian Poems 2012 will satisfy a hunger for storytelling and a yearning for beauty. Poets Include . . .

'I was struck . . . by just how many poems depended on the ancient devices of the storyteller . . . Many have a lyrical or meditative feel, but most have a story to tell, captured in a brief glimpse of the meaning of life, or a dramatic climax.' John Tranter
