Penguin Modern Poets
Gargoyle Poets Series
Australian Poets (incl. Adamson, Tranter, Dransfield)
New Zealand Poets (incl. Hunt, Baker, Bornholdt)
Asian Poets (incl. Po, Un, Basho)
Russian Poets (incl. Yevtushenko, Voznesensky, Mayakovsky)
European Poets (incl. Neruda, Lorca, Ritsos)
American Poets (the Charles Bukowski & Diane Wakoski collections are mightily impressive)
Poetry Journals (incl. Island, Overland, Blue Dog, Versal, Rattapallax)
Beat Literature (everyone from Burroughs to Whalen)
Bob Dylan (yes he gets his own section!); and
Writing by Musicians (incl. Nick Cave, Willy Vlautin, Steve Kilbey)
Here’s a few pics to show the fruits of our days work!
So what did you do this Easter?
