Taller When Prone has at its heart Les Murray's celebrations of the rural world in Australia and elsewhere, evoked with a deep understanding of landscapes, and the seasons, working lives and languages that have shaped them. Stories and songs, fragments of conversations, memories and satire comprise this varied, habitable world. In Murray's vigorous and sinuous language, 'song and story are pixels / in a mirrorball', reflecting back to us endless possibilities.show more
