Notes

  • Epigraph: Gough Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser ... have become a pair of free-wheeling radicals, unafraid to speak out on whatever topic they choose ... How delightful it is to see them ... How lucky we are to witness two former prime ministers, both intellectually alert to the issues of the day, both still wanting to contribute ... both have continued to stride the national and the international stage ... we should be using Gough and Malcolm as role models ... they will not be belittled by those who wish to shame them for their age, etc, etc. - Susan Mitchell, The Australian, 18 December, 2000.

    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)
    Balmain : Quadrant Books , 2012
