Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374235201, Hardcover)

A new book of short poems by Australia’s master poet
Brief, that place in the year
when a blossoming pear tree
with its sweet laundered scent
reinhabits wooden roads
that arch and diverge up
into its electronic snow city.
—“Brief, That Place in the Year”

In Poems the Size of Photographs, Les Murray deftly maneuvers through familiar terrain—the Australian people, politics, and landscape—as well as terrain that is harder to render tangible: history, myth, and symbol. As if trying to find the fissure through which to crack open his subject matter, Murray has sharpened his form to an ideogrammatic brevity. Each snapshot-like poem in this volume develops before the reader’s very eyes, as the initially observed object or moment in time changes meaning and grows in complexity and resonance line by line.
