Historical Fiction - Poetry Stories

Historical fiction usually recounts a famed event of the past or a memorable, recognizable period time period as experienced by fictional characters, but may also describe a historical figure (in their perceived likeness) that must deal with a variety of imagined situations. Historical fiction attempts to accurately capture the essence of history and realise as fully as possible the way the world once was. Striving for plausibility and authenticity, historical fiction allows the reader to both live and learn history, often showcasing political or social issues of the time.

Poetry and prose that are either terribly lovable and understanding of the human psyche, or are so weak in a thought process that you may feel that your time has been wasted. Either way, you have an opinion of the writing by the end of it.

These are new poems inspired by ANZAC day 25/4/13. Our remembrance day. They are irreverent statements about the stupidity and horrors of war, written in Australian vernacular.
