The Oxford Book of Australian Women's Verse is the first anthology to offer a full record of Australian women's poetry from European settlement to the present. The anthology moves from Fidelia Hill's recollections of her arrival in Adelaide to the radical nationalist verse of the 1890s and,
finally, to the abundant verse of the last three decades. It collects the diverse voices of 88 women, including some newly arrived from Europe and representatives of the oldest traditions of the land.
