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.
He has previously published fourteen books of verse in Australia. His work is studied in schools and universities in Australia and beyond.
