Winner Prime Minister’s Literary Poetry Award 2019
Judith Beveridge is one of Australia most acclaimed
poets, taught in high schools and universities, winner of the NSW and Victorian
Premiers' Awards, a highly regarded critic, editor and teacher of poetry
Music is a definitive edition of her best-known
and most important poems
Sun Music collects
Beveridge's best poems published over a thirty-year period, from 1987 to 2017. She
has selected the poems from her award-winning collections, The Domesticity of Giraffes, Accidental Grace, Wolf Notes and Storm and Honey, and included 33 new
poems which build on and enhance her previous work. Beveridge is an exacting
poet, precise and controlled, and her formal discipline gives added intensity
to her expression of emotion. The combination of clarity and dramatic force,
involving a supple use of language which registers the ebb and flow of feeling,
makes her poetry immediately appealing and accessible. As she notes in her
introduction to this collection, `My writing can be kaleidoscopic, often
baroque, but I hope also grounded and focused...I am drawn to poetry that has
rich texture, and by this, I mean poetry that is distinctly metaphorical,
detailed, musically complex, but also clear.'
poet whose gentle and exacting touch and sure-poetic skills bear witness to a
broad human vision, capable of expressing and engendering compassion, insight
and grace.' Michael Brennan, Poetry International
