Your list has always been interesting, idiosyncratic, imaginative and your translations [...] have been a source of pleasure to me.

  • About
  • Reviews
  • Judith Wright (1915 - 2000) was an Australian poet, environmentalist and campaigner for human, especially Aboriginal, rights. Born in Armidale, New South Wales, she published many collections of poems and books of prose, including The Generations of Men, Preoccupations in Australian Poetry and Born of the Conquerors. Her Collected Poems (1994) and A Human Pattern: Selected Poems (1992) were published by Carcanet Press. Judith Wright was awarded the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry in 1992.
    Praise for Judith Wright (1915 - 2000) 'Judith Wright seems to belong to the two generations that followed hers, her own work changing and leading the changes in Australian writing and opening a way for the new poetry of the older people.'
    Michael Schmidt, Lives of the Poets
