O could one write as one makes love when all is given and nothing kept, then language might put by at last its coy elisions and inept withdrawals, yield, and yielding cast aside like useless clothes the crust of worn and shabby use, and trust Described by Peter Porter as the 'outstanding Australian poet of the twentieth century', Gwen Harwood's work is defined by a moving sensuality, a twinkling irreverence, and a sly wit. Harwood published over 420 works in her lifetime, many of which continue to be studied widely in schools and universities across Australia. This anthology brings together the best 100 of her poems, as selected and compiled by her son, the writer John Harwood.
