A history of Australian poetry/art is sometimes difficult to pin down. The evolution of Australia’s culture has always been marked by change, and this continues today as a result of immigration. When Australia was first established, it wasn’t entirely understood by the world. In fact, it was sometimes considered to be a backwater with no place in the world for arts and culture.

Immigration into Australia had a large impact on the way in which Australia perceived itself; it changed its identity in the eyes of others; and this change was reflected through the poetry of that period. The nineteenth century saw many important poets begin to write in Australian. The evolution of Australia’s cultural identity was reflected by the evolution of its poetry and art.

The Victorian period was one of great change in Australia, as the country was split up between British rule in the north and that of French colonial rule in the south. This division was reflected through the development of poetry, which became more Australian. During this time, Australia began to develop its own identity as well. Art became more modern, with works like the Sydney Opera House becoming major influences on the later poets.

The second half of the nineteenth century saw an increase in the number of artists in Australia. The first significant artists were the Aborigines who were given an opportunity to explore the use of different forms of art and the ways in which they could express themselves. These artists would eventually form the basis of what we know of today as Australian Art.

From this point, the evolution of Australian Poetry and art becomes apparent. Throughout this period, there was an increase in the number of artists that developed their craft. As a result, the artists were given the opportunity to expand their canvas, taking on subjects such as the natural environment, nature, animals and more.

The second half of this period saw an increase in the amount of work that was published in Australia, as many writers moved from the country to begin writing in the literary world. This was a sign of hope and change for those writers, as they took on the challenge of writing in a foreign country. However, it was also a sign of a rise in the standard of Australian poetry.

There is no doubt that Australia is home to some of the finest poetry and artistic work in the world today. The country is well known for it’s art and the poetry of the past. It has been noted for the quality of its writing, and the quality of its poets.
