Subhuman Redneck Poems by Les A Murray

Book Description

Winner of the 1996 T. S. Eliot Prize for the Best Book of Poetry in EnglishJoseph Brodsky once said of Les Murray: "He is, quite simply, the one by whom the language lives." In these darkly funny and deeply observant "Subhuman Redneck Poems," farmers, fathers, poverty-stricken pioneers, and people blackened by the grist of sugar mills are exposed to the blazing midday sun of Murray's linguistic powers. Richly inventive, tenderly detailed, and fiercely honest, these poems both surprise and expose the human in all of us.
