Summary

The great forgetting conveys the forgotten story of Australia during the past couple of hundred years. In poetry and with striking reproductions, it tells of the interaction between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people: the brutality, arrogance, honest misunderstandings, occasional decencies and continuing unresolved problems.

In this creative contribution towards national reconciliation, poet Geoff Page and Aboriginal artist Bevan Hayward (Pooaraar) combine their significant talents in an effort to end 'the great forgetting'.
