In Waiting for the Past he continues his use of molten language.
From ‘The Black Beaches’ to ‘Radiant Pleats, Mulgoa’, from ‘High Speed Trap Space’ to ‘1960 Brought the Electric’, this is verse that renews and transforms our sense of the world.
Another new book of Les’, On Bunyah, will be published in October 2015. It brings together a collection of the poems Murray has written about the place where he comes from and by extension about the rural life and small communities of Australia.
Les Murray is one of Australia’s living treasures. He has published fourteen books of verse in Australia and his work is studied in schools and universities in Australia and beyond.
All are invited to attend this free event and light refreshments will be provided. Seats are limited for this very popular event so book early to avoid disappointment.
Cost: Free with booking required
