Prescribed Text for HSC 2019-2023 – Advanced Module B: Critical Study of Literature

In his first full volume of poetry since Typewriter Music in 2007, David Malouf once again shows us why he is one of Australia’s most enduring and respected writers.

David Malouf’s new collection comes to rest at the perfect, still moment of ‘silence, following talk’ after its exploration of memory, imagination and mortality.

With elegance and wit, these poems move from profound depths to whimsy and playfulness. As Malouf interweaves light and dark, levity and gravity, he offers a vision of life on ‘this patch/of earth and its green things’, charting the resilience of beauty amidst stubborn human grace.
