Judith Wright (1915—2000) was one of Australia's most celebrated poets and one of only two to be considered for the Nobel prize. Her volume Birds was first published in 1962, and 60 years on the National Library of Australia is proud to be bringing this precious collection to today’s audience in this modern new edition.
The poems in Birds commemorate Judith’s love of birds, while on a deeper level exploring a gamut of very human experiences, from the delightful, to the humorous, to the sorrowful.
Featuring a contemporary, elegant design, and illustrated with artworks by renowned nature painters such as William T. Cooper, Neville Cayley, and Lilian Medland, this book will be treasured not only by lovers of poetry and art, but anyone who appreciates beauty.
