Picture of Immigrant Chronicle (New Edition)

Immigrant Chronicle (New Edition)

Peter Skrzynecki is a poet and fiction writer of Polish-Ukrainian descent. His poems are largely poems of reflection and observation, but in the course of their "meditations" on experience they touch on the special pathos of immigrant families as they come to terms with a new and very foreign country. His poems are filled with brilliant and unusual imagery of the Australian landscape. He shows splendid technical ability, a power of restraint and, above all, that overtone of mingled sadness and joy, completely unanalysable, which is pure poetry." Kenneth Slessor "This entirely European combination of world-loss and ancestral harboring, of refuge, is perhaps the most important contribution Skrzynecki has yet made to our poetry." Thomas Shapcott "It is a mark of Skrzynecki's genius that "Immigrant Chronicle" can fairly lay claim to being the best poetical treatment of the immigrant experience, in Australia, since the nineteenth century." Stephen Magee
