Waiting for the Past is the much-anticipated new collection from Les Murray. His first book of poetry since 2010’s Taller When Prone, Waiting for the Past is a volume long-awaited for good reason — displaying not only the range of Murray’s artistic abilities, but the way in which his synaesthetic verse transforms our sense of the world.
Join us for a special evening with Australia’s leading poet. Introduced by Michael Williams.
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.
Michael Williams is the Director of the Wheeler Centre.
