Les Murray reads from his new volume of poems, Taller When Prone.
Les Murray is Australia’s leading poet. In 2015, his first new collection of poems in five years will be published, Waiting for the Past. Bunyah will follow later in the year, a collection that brings together the poems Murray has written about the place where he comes from and by extension about the rural life and small communities of Australia.
Lisa Gorton’s first collection, Press Release, was shortlisted for the Mary Gilmore Award and the Melbourne Prize Best Writing Award, and won the Victorian Premier’s Prize for Poetry.
