The Biplane Houses
The Biplane Houses is Les Murray’s first new volume of poems since 2002’s Poems the Size of Photographs. In it we find the poet at his near-miraculous best. The collection exhibits both Murray’s unfailing grace as a writer and his ability to write in any voice, style or genre: there are story poems, word-plays, history- and myth- makings, aphoristic fragments and domestic portraits. Houses are a many-sided theme of the book, and as ever, Murray’s evocation of the natural world is unparalleled in its inventiveness and virtuosity.
