Les Murray's new and updated Collected Poems displays the full range of his poetic art. This magnificent hardback volume contains all the poems he wants to preserve, apart from the verse novel Fredy Neptune, from his first book The Ilex Tree (1965) to Waiting for the Past (2015). In tracing Murray's artistic development, it shows an ever-changing power, grace and humour, as well as great versatility and formal mastery.

Les Murray lives in Bunyah, near Taree in New South Wales. The author of some thirty books, his work is studied in schools and universities around Australia and has been translated into several foreign languages. In 1996 he was awarded the T.S. Eliot Prize for poetry, in 1998 he won the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry and in 2004 he was awarded the Mondello Prize. His most recent collections include The Biplane Houses, Fredy Neptune, Selected Poems, Collected Poems, Killing the Black Dog and Taller When Prone.
