Along the Line by Vivian Smith
Book DescriptionFilled with precise observation of the interior and exterior world, as well as lashings of wit, Smith's wide-ranging, often poignant lyrics take us on tour through history, ideas, people and places. He is the perfect travel companion in a sortie of the century and its cultural outputs - as well as its detritus, cast-offs, conflict and ephemera. This perfectly weighted collection offers us pleasure, wisdom and redress.

Vivian Smith was born in Hobart in 1933.

After a distinguished career as an academic, he retired in 1996. He is a highly respected critic, having produced key studies on Australian literature and contributed much to the growth and sophistication of criticism surrounding Australian poetry. From 1975 to 1990 he was the literary editor of Quadrant.
