Les Murray writes of his New South Wales landscapes, of the cities of Australia, and of the lands and peoples he has travelled and lived among. He has a vision of how things are and a sense of how they ought to be. His is a poetry of incommensurables: of the sacred, and also of this world. He is like an early Romantic, vigorous and unsentimental.
