Robert Gray and Robert Adamson are two of the most prolific and honored poets writing in Australia today. But from where does their poetry come and to where is it leading? I would argue that both Gray and Adamson are, in different ways, exponents of a late Australian Romanticism. In developing this view I will also respond to and develop some of the arguments outlined by Paul Kane in his book, Australian Poetry: Romandeism and Negativity (1996).
