Some brief overview of book

A fresh selection of the finest poemssome previously uncollectedby one of our finest English-language poets Why write poetry? For the weird unemployment. For the painless headaches, that must be tapped to strike down along your writing arm at the accumulated moment.

For the adjustments after, aligning facets in a verb before the trance leaves you. For working always beyond your own intelligence. from "The Instrument" New Selected Poems contains Les Murray's own gathering from the full range of his poetryfrom the 1960s through Taller When Prone (2004) and including previously uncollected work. One of the finest poets writing today, Murray reinvents himself with each new collection.

Whether writing about the indignities of childhood or the depths of depression, or evoking the rhythms of the natural world; whether writing in a sharply rendered Australian vernacular or a perfectly pitched King's English, his versatility and vitality are a constant. 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 who are new to it.
