Celebration : Peter Porter Angela Bennie , 2010 single work biography
— Appears in: Australian Author , August vol. 42 no. 2 2010; (p. 26-29)
Peter Porter spent most of his life caught in fork, Clive James wrote shortly after his mate’s death this year. He was punished in Australia for trying to please the Poms, and punished in the UK for being an Aussie expatriate with a frame of reference above his station. But Porter’s poetry finally won him acceptance in both camps.
