The Quadrant Book of Poetry

By Les Murray

These days, Les Murray observes, when poetic values are increasingly being seen as real enrichment, readers are turning to the few journals that nurture them. ‘Poetry ceases to be the subject matter and becomes an avenue of personal expression and hope. At a time of such turn-about in the life of magazines, a Quadrant anthology seems well overdue.’

From the second decade of his 20 years as literary editor of Quadrant, Les Murray presents a selection of the best verse he published between 2001 and 2010. It is a prodigious body of work: 487 poems by 169 authors.
