      Due to his severe self criticism and fear of failure, he did not publish many of his poems. However, one of his poems that he did publish became one of the most prominent in the Graveyard School. In fact, it is still one of the most quoted poems in the English language. It is entitled “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyardâ€. Australian literature is the written or literary work produced in the area or by the people of the Commonwealth of Australia and its preceding colonies. During its early Western history, Australia was a collection of British colonies, therefore, its recognised literary tradition begins with and is linked to the broader tradition of English literature.

      My Candle Burns at Both Ends (First Fig) and 2 other poems by Millay (Graveyard Poetry) - Duration: seconds. This collection of Australian poems was written by both adults and children, with illustrations by Gregory Rogers. The poems in this collection make us think about what life in Australia is like: life before the Europeans; life in the early years of European settlement and what it is like to live here now. Many of the poems capture strong feelings, others tell a story or a joke, others leave.

      Neil Gaiman, author of The Graveyard Book, doesn’t hide the fact that he’s in looove with Rudyard Kipling’s classic collection of short stories The Jungle Book (which you can read for free online, illustrations and all).This love is shown in the title, which – as you can see – just substitutes “Graveyard” for “Jungle.” Gaiman's beloved Jungle Book is the story of an orphan.
