About this title

Synopsis:

In this collection of poems, farmers, fathers, poverty-stricken pioneers, and people blackened by the grist of the sugar mills are exposed to the blazing midday sun of Murray's linguistic powers. Richly inventive, tenderly perceptive, and fiercely honest, these poems surprise and bare the human in all of us.

Review:

Derek Walcott, who numbers himself among Les Murray's fans, writes, "There is no poetry in the English language now so rooted in its sacredness, so broad-leafed in its pleasures, and yet so intimate and conversational." Subhuman Redneck Poems was recently awarded the T. S. Eliot Prize in the United Kingdom, and Murray is one of the most honored poets in Australia. I especially like "Deaf Language," which suggests themes of connection and distance at the same time it acknowledges the untranslatable wisdom of the body.
