    'Dorothy Porter was one of Australia’s truly original writers, renowned for her passionate, offbeat poetry and verse novels. The Best 100 Poems of Dorothy Porter draws from her life’s work to present the many facets of Porter the poet, from stretching the fabric of ancient mythology to delving into the beauty of the natural world, or inking an intimate message on your heart. This elegant hardback, a companion volume to The Best 100 Poems of Les Murray, is the perfect gift for Porter fans and newcomers alike. (Publisher's blurb)
