AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Still alive when Les Murray was a young poet, Kenneth Slessor called him to a meeting, and passed on the torch. As far as I know, Murray has never recorded this moment in print, but I once heard him refer to it. He was rightly proud, because Slessor, in those days, was the Australian poet who filled our sky. Today Murray fills the sky not just in his homeland but in all the world. His achievement has been magisterial, and needs no further proving. If he adds more poems now, it can only be because he loves what he does.' (Publication abstract)
