In his first new volume of poems since "Poems the Size of Photographs" (2002), Les Murray celebrates the grace and variousness of the world with an unfailing abundance of imagination and linguistic energy.
Here is a poet writing at the height of his powers, capturing the richness of life in story-poems, word-plays, history- and myth-makings, aphoristic fragments and domestic portraits, recollections of rural Australia and moments of urban experience.
Houses - as home, landscape and metaphor - form a many-sided theme of the book, and as ever Murray's evocation of the natural world is unparalleled in its inventiveness.
