Australian poetry takes on the world

A couple of days ago, a fellow phd student who’s teaching on the poetry module at the moment told me he got his class to look at ‘Noonday Axeman‘ because he remembered a paper I gave on Les Murray about a year ago. He said he’d never heard of Murray before then, but when he saw the poems in the anthology he remembered, and thought he’d give it a shot. Awesome.

    that sets off a big glow in my heart. well, that sounds rather hyperbolic, but that is what it feels like. i think because so many of LM’s poems glow so wonderfully, it’s just great to see more people reading them…
