The poetry of Australian Robert Gray has been set for HSC study in NSW since 2015. This accessible guide presents a thorough analysis of how each poem (EXCEPT 'MEATWORKS') responds to theme of Discovery set for study. It contains relevant and accessibly-written explanations about Gray's intellectual, literary, and artistic context. Each poem, except the contentious 'Meatworks', is analysed in accessible language, and there is a summary box at the beginning which shows at a glance what the 'discovery' in each poem is, what poetic techniques are used, and suggestions for related texts.
There is also a bonus essay written to a past HSC exam question, which uses Ian Fleming's short story 'The Living Daylights' as the related text.
NOTE: THESE NOTES DO NOT INCLUDE GRAY'S POEM 'MEATWORKS'
