Translations from the Natural World, Paperback

Translations from the Natural World Paperback



Not only the migrating birds speak in "Translations from the Natural World".

The imprisoned species of pigs use their slum language; ravens, cuttlefish, sunflowers and a shell-back tick are among those non-verbal members of our natural world which find distinctive voices in this new collection of poems by Les Murray.

Few poets could achieve such variety of approach to express character and feelings and to give us their vision of the universe.

Les Murray also includes the human animal in the poems which begin and conclude the collection.
