Description

For nearly forty years Peter Skrzynecki has published poetry that explores the assimilation of post-war immigrants in Australia, chronicling their struggle for identity and acceptance into mainstream society. His poems are elegiac, meditative and lyrical - intimately concerned with the Australian landscape, its people, fauna and flora, as well as family, human relationships and art. Old/New Worldcontains a generous selection of poems from his eight previous books, including Immigrant Chronicleand a new section, Blood Plums.
