Les Murray : A Life in Progress

£17.99

Product description

Published in 2000 by Oxford University Press.

This is the first biography of one of Australia's finest poets; a famed lyricist, polyglot, and polemicist. Alexander draws on extensive interviews with Murray to reveal how this complex man endured the harshest and most anti-intellectual of childhoods to develop into one of the most famous poets writing in English today

A candid biography about Murray's impoverished and unhappy childhood; and his emotional life and rivalries. Based on extensive interviews with the poet and his contemporaries. As one of Australia's leading poets, critics and essayists this is a fascinating biography. It includes a number of monochrome photographs in the text. A riveting story with all the psychological subtlety of a good novel.

Complete with unclipped dust jacket, which is protected by a plastic sleeve. This is in a good clean condition throughout with sound binding. Slight yellowing to top of pages.
