This collection, its title taken from Isaiah, continues in the same vein of prophecy as Peter Porter's last works, "Millennial Fables". This time, however, the poems are lighter in tone, sometimes quirkily humorous, and the detail of the poetry more down-to-earth. The countries he visits include his land of birth, Australia, and his beloved Italy.show more
