  • Appears in:
    y The Quadrant Book of Poetry 2001-2010 Les Murray (editor), Balmain : Quadrant Books , 2012 Z1847370 2012 anthology poetry '"It has been known for decades", Les Murray writes in his introduction to this collection, "that poets who might fear relegation or professional sabotage from the critical consensus of our culture have a welcome and a refuge in Quadrant—but only if they write well."

    From the second decade of his twenty years as literary editor of Quadrant, Les Murray here presents a selection of the best verse he published between 2001 and 2010.

    It is a prodigious body of work: 487 poems by 169 authors.

    These days, he observes, when poetic values are increasingly being seen as real enrichment, readers are turning to the few journals that nurture them:

    "At a time of such turn-about in the life of magazines, a Quadrant anthology seems well overdue."' (Publisher's blurb)

Works about this Work

My Craft or Sullen Art : Poetry and Songwriting Joe Dolce , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Meanjin , vol. 73 no. 1 2014; (p. 116-127)
'Among many contemporary poets and writers there is a reverence approaching myopia towards certain iconic singer-songwriters from the early 19, most notable Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, which prevents clear-eyed critical analysis of their careers and current work. There is also confusion as to whether these singer-songwriters should be considered poets, lyricists, poet-lyricists, singer-poets or a dozen other hyphenated nouns.' (Author's introduction 116)
