What acclaimed Australian Poet was actually invented by two bored soldiers in 1943?
"Ern Malley." The soldiers, James Philip McAuley and Harold Stewart, who were poets themselves, constructed an oeuvre for "Ern Malley" by making collages of texts available in their remote security outpost. "Malley," originally intended as an embarrassment to the Australian avant-garde, has come to be highly respected by poets like John Ashbery and Kenneth Koch.
