Biographical history

Bruce Victor Beaver was born and educated in Manly, Sydney. Beaver published his first volume of poetry in 1961 and followed this with several more volumes, but it was his Letters to Live Poets (1969) that attracted most attention, winning several awards. While his later poetry has not attracted the same attention as this volume, he is widely admired for his experimentation and skill with the forms of prose-poetry and confessional poetry. Furthermore, his role as adviser and contributing editor to Poetry Australia had a significant influence on the "New Australian Poetry" of the 1970s. -- excerpted from AustLit
