AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The article demonstrates that Murray's poems "of more than one or two pages but less than fifty or a hundred" have "modes and preoccupations in common: they are topographical poems in which the protagonist moves through a landscape observing and reflecting; or they are family memoirs and chronicles; or ... they are a combination of both" (p.43). The author also examines Murray's sympathy for the "Foucaultian crew of social outsiders ... marginalised by folie" (p. 49), which he sees as an energising force in the most successful of these poems.
