Southern Sun, Aegean Light: Poetry of Second-Generation Greek-Australians

Edited by Nick Trakakis

Southern Sun, Aegean Light represents the very first attempt to collect in a single volume the poetry of second-generation Greek-Australians. Bringing together the distinct and diverse work of over thirty poets, from the well established to the newly published, this collection showcases the poetic contribution of a generation that has arisen out of the shadows of its migrant past as it establishes a voice and sensibility of its own. The poetry presented here challenges stereotypes of what it is to be Greek-Australian, while also grappling with a variety of issues beyond identity and belonging, including death and dying, and memory and loss. These are poems to be savoured by earlier and later generations of Greek-Australians, as well as the wider community in Australia.
