With characteristic grace and dexterity, these poems combine a mastery of form with a matchless ear for the Australian vernacular. Many evoke rural life here and abroad - its rhythms and rituals, the natural world, the landscape and the people who have shaped it. There are traveller's tales, elegies, meditative fragments and satirical sketches. Above all there is Murray's astonishing versatility, on display here at its exhilarating best.'
