A magnificent new hardback collection from one of Australia’s most celebrated poets, to be enjoyed by fans and newcomers alike.
‘One of the great books of the modern world.’ —Clive James
Les Murray’s new and updated Collected Poems displays the full range of his poetic art. This magnificent hardback volume contains all the poems he wants to preserve, apart from the verse novel Fredy Neptune, from his first book The Ilex Tree (1965) to Waiting for the Past (2015). In tracing Murray’s artistic development, it shows an ever-changing power, grace and humour, as well as great versatility and formal mastery.
