Aden Rolfe » The Best Australian Poems 2011 / Black Inc. / 2011
Aden’s poem, “How we tell stories about ourselves”, was selected for The Best Australian Poems 2011 as one of the most vigorous, varied and interesting poems of the year. Edited by celebrated poet John Tranter, this sparkling anthology shines a light on the phantasmagorical nature of poetry, evoking images, transformations and events that range from the playful to the melancholy by way of exuberance and satire. Featuring award-winning poems alongside brand-new works, as well as a mix of emerging and renowned poets, this is a volume of surreal beauty and emotional resonance.
