    LibriVox volunteers bring you 6 recordings of The Austra--laise by C.J.Dennis. This was the Fortnightly Poetry project for January 13, 2013.THE AUSTRALAISE is a poem composed by C.J. Dennis, widely considered to the poet laureate of vernacular verse in Australia. It first appeared in his collection, Backblock Ballads and Other Verses, the first edition of which was published in 1913. A source from which Dennis drew inspiration was W.T. Goodge's poem The Great Australian Adjective, which first appeared in the Bulletin in 1898.Designed to be sung to the tune of Onward Christian Soldiers, this poem features two prominent aspects of Australian literature - profanity and patriotism. While the profanity is extremely mild today's standards, the poem is still extremely appealing because of Dennis' mocking subversion of the grandiloquence that characterizes most national anthems.(Summary by Algy Pug)

    Play description  
    ACT I  
    Scene 1. Antonio is a rich merchant in Venice; ships bearing his goods sail round the world. Antonio’s  
    friend Bassanio has fallen in love with Portia, a wealthy and beautiful young woman dwelling in  
    Belmont, but lacks the means to woo her in appropriate style; he asks Antonio for help. Antonio’s  
    fortune is all with his ships at sea, but he vows to borrow whatever sums Bassanio may require in  
    order to help his friend.  
    Scene 2. In Belmont, Portia complains to her maid Nerissa that she has not been left free to choose her  
    husband for herself. Her dead father has devised a test consisting of three caskets made of gold, silver,  
    and lead; only the suitor who chooses the right casket may marry Portia.  
    Scene 3. Bassanio has gone to Shylock, a wealthy Jew, to borrow money on Antonio’s credit. Shylock  
    is deeply hostile to Antonio, who makes no attempt to hide the contempt he feels for him.  
    Nonetheless, Shylock is prepared to lend his enemy the sum required on condition that, if the money is  
    not repaid when it is due, Shylock will have the right to cut a pound of flesh from Antonio’s body.  
    Bassanio is horrified, but Antonio accepts the  
    condition, confident that his ships will have returned in time.

    Autumn, interchangeably known as fall in North America, is one of the four temperate seasons. Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter, in September (Northern Hemisphere) or March (Southern Hemisphere), when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier and the temperature cools considerably. One of its main features is the shedding of leaves from deciduous trees.In North America, autumn is usually considered to start with the September equinox (21 or 22) and end with the winter solstice (21 or 22 December).
