Jack Thompson on the Legendary Banjo Paterson

Article By: Emily Finepoet

I first heard the poems of Banjo Paterson as a schoolboy. In the 1940’s, along with Dorothea McKellar’s I Love A Sunburnt Country and Henry Lawson’s The Ballad Of The Drover, they were considered to be an important part of our education as young Australians. What I remember most is the mood that they conjured up: an optimistic world of humour and bravery, an irrepressible pioneering spirit. Hearing the poems gave me a sense of life’s adventure and made me feel that I understood, just for a momen

Six Ways to Make Memorizing Poetry Easier

Article By: Kevin P. Green

The best way to experience poetry is to hear it out loud. While some poems are made to be read, for many you cannot get their full effect without hearing the spoken word. Epic poems were used since ancient times to tell stories and teach lessons, a task which has been replaced by books, movies, television, and the Internet. There is still a place for poetry, however. Whether it’s in competitions, or just to entertain, reciting poetry can be a wonderful and fulfilling experience. Having children

What is Poetry Becoming - Concrete, Visual, Digital, Performance, Experiential?

Article By: Jennifer Phillips

There are many forms of poetry. Some are best read while others are best viewed and in the future we may add that some are best felt or experienced. Some think that "good poetry" must rhyme while others think that "good" poetry "speaks" giving a clear or profound message. Others may call poetry that behaves like a springboard, launching creative responses in those who share it, the best, but however it is viewed, poetry like fashion is clothed in styles that affect its acceptability and/or re

Never Thought It Would Be You

Article By: Julie Francis

Poetry is the language of emotion and as such it is often dense and difficult to read. The exception to this is the love poem. Love is the one emotion that although it causes conflicts and confusion when not returned, and sometimes a form of madness not unlike obsessive compulsive disorder - when it is returned - it is the simplest emotion to understand. Valentine's day often has people looking for poetry. People who at any other time would say they never read it. It is because we feel so pro

Article By: ASK Pheifer

As the traditional book publishing industry becomes warier of risk and more dedicated to sure-thing titles by celebrity authors, movie tie-ins, and self-help books, poets in particular can find it hard to find a foothold. While artistic success in poetry might simply lie in the writing itself, commercial success can be trickier to achieve. For the poet, the dream of keeping pace with best-selling authors like J.K. Rowling, John Grisham, and Danielle Steel may be an aspiration that’s hard to

Thorn

Article By: Anna Williams

Beneath the shadow of the sky I felt the wind pulse, watched it fly. In the autumn, in the storm, The wind was true, the wind was warm. Warmer than what I'd become For I was empty, cold, and numb. Like a blossom in the frost That dies in heartache and is lost Despairing it will never be Young again; will never see The moonlit dewdrop's quiet birth And fades to cold, black, callous earth... I hungered no more for the stars. I raised myself against the bars, And shut away each desp
