This definitive collection represents the impressive poetic achievement of one of Australia's best-loved and most highly respected poets. Judith Wright's Collected Poems comprises her work from 1942 to 1985 and is a fitting tribute to an outstanding poet.
Demonstrating a deep love of the Australian landscape, an awareness of white history and an intense concern for Aboriginal rights, she increasingly focused on the need for wildlife preservation and conservation. She was one of the first Australian environmentalists.
The late Dorothy Porter referred to Judith Wright's poetry as being so lucid and perceptive that it was 'shining with meaning'. (back cover)
