The late Les Murray was our unofficial poet laureate – irascible, generous, thoughtful, refractory. His poetry was so influential it rewrote our vernacular. He moves us as he is effortlessly profound. In this special event, veteran of the Australian stage Peter Carroll performs a broad survey of Les’s verse, from his early work in the Sydney years to selections from the newly released posthumous Continuous Creation. Joseph Brodsky described Les as “quite simply, the one by whom the language lives.” In this presentation by another of our national treasures, the language lives on.
