Format: Paperback
Murray's pleasures are very much bound up with his difficulties. I've given him five stars because I genuinely suspect there is no greater poet - or writer of any kind - at work today. That said, I think he's a hard poet to love. His intelligence is huge, brooding, formidable - even rebarbative. There's an impatience and an aggression to some of his writing. But in "Broadbean Sermon" and "The Watertank," for instance, his facility, his ability to see and hear, deeply and relentlessly, put me in mind of John Clare. Unlike Clare, though, he's always in control, never quite immersed in his vision. There's none of Keats's negative capability here. Anyone seriously interested in writing ought to read him, because his power transcends individual taste. He is truly awesome.

A book large and heavy enough to kill someone with, but a better option is to come back to it again and again. Murray's poetry is overwhelmingly Australian (sometimes irritatingly so)with references to kookaburras, kangaroos and koalas, although I haven't yet found the word billabong. Some poems are amusing, others thought-provoking, a great book to dip in and out of.
