Taller When Prone PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Taller When Prone free pdf "Taller When Prone "is Les Murray's first volume of new poems since "The Biplane Houses," published five years ago. These poems combine a mastery of form with a matchless ear for the Australian vernacular. Many evoke rural life here and abroad--its rhythms and rituals, the natural world, the landscape and the people who have shaped it. There are traveler's tales, elegies, meditative fragments, and satirical sketches. Above all, there is Murray's astonishing versatility, on display here at its exhilarating best.
Fame

"I managed "to answer her: "Ma'am they've done you nothing but good! "which was perhaps immodest "of whoever I am."
