In answer to the question 'Can poets or their work ever escape the political?', Lambert aims 'to explore the problematic relationship between poetry and prose' by turning 'first to Murray's draft preamble to the Australian constitution, as well as his draft Oath of Allegiance for the then federal government.' She then examines Murray's poetry 'to see whether his politics can be kept separate from his poetry' and finally argues 'that poetry cannot be explicated from the political, and that Murray's work only furthers this claim.' (p.5)
