The article provides an overview of livres composés, which is a response to the challenge of the long poem that developed in the mid-to late-nineteenth century. It mentions that it proves the importance in the development of a new influence of French poetry to Australian poetry through the work of Christopher Brennan, a poet and a professor. It also enumerates the work of Brennan through the development of livres composés, which include "XXI Poems," "The Burden of Tyre" and "A Chant of Doom."
