One thought on “Collected Poems, 1942 1970”

  1. I didn't read all the poems - one can take it slowly. However her collection, Birds, for her daughter, is wonderful. She so captures the birds of Australia she writes about but also has cogent things to say about life for humans as well. She is a premier poet of lasts century in Australia. Her poetry is for the most part pretty accessible and speaks to us all. She was an environmentalist and activist for aboriginal rights as well. An indomitable woman.

  2. No doubt a great poet for her style. We have different ways of expression so not really for me but I definitely learnt a lot.
