For nearly forty years Peter Skrzynecki has published poetry that explores the assimilation of postwar immigrants in Australia, chronicling their struggle for identity and acceptance into mainstream society. His poems are elegiac, meditative and lyrical – intimately concerned with the Australian landscape, its people, fauna and flora, as well as family, human relationships and art. Old/New World contains a generous selection of poems from his eight previous books, including 'Immigrant Chronicle' and a new section, 'Blood Plums'.
