ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Stephen Edgar was born in Sydney in 1951 and grew up and was educated there. In the early seventies he lived in London and, on returning to Australia in 1974, moved to Hobart, Tasmania, where he lived until recently. He currently lives in Sydney again. He attended the University of Tasmania, studying Classics and English. He has published six collections of poetry, the most recent being Other Summers. His previous book, Lost in the Foreground, won the Grace Leven prize for 2004. He won the inaugural Australian Book Review Poetry Prize in 2005 for “Man on the Moon”, which appears in Other Summers, and in 2006 was awarded the Philip Hodgins Memorial Medal for literature.

Listen to Stephen Edgar reading a selection of poems, ranging over his last 12 years in print, and you will hear why he is one of Australia’s most important poets. Taken from Corrupted Treasure (William Heinmann , ) Where the Trees Were (Indigo), lost in the foreground (Duffy and Snellgrove) and his latest book Other Summers (Black Pepper), we meet the pleasant paradox that within his nearly formal sense of poetic structure you might find anything, and in meeting it, know it more fully and truly.

“I can’t think of anyone writing poetry in English, at the moment or recently, who renders the natural world with the voluptuous precision of Stephen Edgar. These are poems of elegance and depth.”
August Kleinzahler
