Regime 05: The Poetry Issue, ed. Andrew Burke (Regime Books)

This collection of 111 poems represents some of the best contemporary poetry and poets currently at work in Australia - and a few from over the oceans.

This latest issue of Regime includes new work from Andrew Taylor, Andy Jackson, Annamaria Weldon, Jill Jones, Judith Rodriguez, Geoff Page, Amanda Joy and Andrew Lansdown, and is also the home for new poetry by Merv Lilley and his daughter, social anthropologist and poet Rozanna Lilley. Now in his 90s, Merv wrote his first book of poems What About the People? (1962) with his wife Dorothy Hewett.

John Tranter also appears for the first time in Regime with characteristic wisdom in his Advice to a New Writer. A long poem by Martin Harrison is included, along with a personal recollection by Terri-ann White, who writes movingly of this poet who was lost far too soon by the Australian poetry community.
