'New Selected Poem
s contains Les Murray's gathering from the full range of his poetry, from poems of the 1960s to work from Taller When Prone
(2004) and new poems yet to appear in a collection.
'Les Murray is one of the finest poets writing today; endlessly inventive, his work celebrates the world and the power of the imagination. New Selected Poems is the poet's choice of his essential works: an indispensable collection for readers who already love his poetry, and an ideal introduction for those new to it.'
