The Biplane Houses
This is Les Murray's first new volume of poems since 2002's Poems the Size of Photographs. In it we find Murray 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 and genre: there are story poems, word-plays, history - and myth-makings, aphorisitc fragments and domestic portraits. As ever, Murray's evocation of the natural world is unparalleled in its inventiveness and virtuosity.
