Considers language and metre in Murray's poetry, examining it in relation to Murray's concept of "Wholespeak" which requires poetry to "engage us physically, in addition to integrating our different levels of consciousness" (p.66). The influences of Hopkins's sprung rhythm, Gaelic sound patterns and Aboriginal poetry on Murray's work are also explored.
