A Draft Preamble : Les Murray and the Politics of Poetry, Helen Lambert , single work criticism
In answer to the question 'Can poets or their work ever escape the political?', Lambert aims 'to explore the problematic relationship between poetry and prose' by turning 'first to Murray's draft preamble to the Australian constitution, as well as his draft Oath of Allegiance for the then federal government.' She then examines Murray's poetry 'to see whether his politics can be kept separate from his poetry' and finally argues 'that poetry cannot be explicated from the political, and that Murray's work only furthers this claim.' (p.5)
(p. 5-14, notes 231-232)
Orpheus on the Hawkesbury : Placing Robert Adamson, Andrew Johnson , single work criticism
With reference to the work of Robert Adamson, Johnson looks at the 'distinctive ways in which individual poets have tried to orient themselves in this country with respect to "the environment" ... and at the ways in which each poet establishes a sense of being at 'home' in a place.' (p.29)
