About this title


In this collection, Australian poet Les Murray challenges himself to write an elegy for his father, and to write about his altering country, its history, landscapes and peoples.


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.
