Gerald Murnane, now in his eightieth year, began his writing career as a poet. After many years as a writer of fiction, he only returned to poetry a few years ago when he moved to Goroke after the death of his wife. The forty-five poems collected here are in a strikingly different mode to his fiction, without framing or digressions, and with very few images, they speak openly to the reader of the author's memories, beliefs and experiences. The poems include tributes to his mother and father and to his family, and to places that have played a formative role in his life and several poems are dedicated to authors who have influenced him - Lesbia Harford, Thomas Hardy, William Carlos Williams, Henry Handel Richardson, Marcel Proust, and John Clare.
