An online collection of articles and images on the life of Australia's first poet of note, who is the only Australian to have a memorial in The Poets' Corner, Westminster Abbey.

Significance

Adam Lindsay Gordon was the first poet in Australia to bring the Australian bush to the Australian public through poetic description that they could understand.
Through his poems the Australian Literature Society was formed. The impressionist painters, McCubbin, Streeton and Condor met to use his poetry themes to paint in the open air. They became the foundation for The Heidelberg School.

The poets Lawson and Paterson, who came after Gordon, used his poems and popularity as a foundations for their work.
