Vale Les Murray, a Witty, Anti-Authoritarian, National Poet Who Spoke to the World, David McCooey , single work obituary

'The death of the Australian poet Les Murray at the age of 80 is a profound loss for his family and friends. It is also a great loss for literature. Whether one writes “world literature” or “Australian literature” here signifies not only Murray’s standing, but also a profound tension in his status as a poet. Murray has long been seen, not only as Australia’s pre-eminent living poet, but also as its national poet.'  (Introduction)
