Summary Robert Harris (1951-1993) is a major poet who has until now missed out on the Selected Poems milestone, despited being heavily anthologised. Unaligned with any 'faction', though a close friend to many in the literary community, Harris is notable for the variety of his subject matter and inspiration. Beyond this variety (which eschews novelty) there are two things which anchor the Harris opus: his commitment to non-jingoistic Australian themes and subject matter and the Christian faith that became his poetry's bedrock. This volume represents a generous selection of Harris' gritty and humane poetry, a towering accomplishment of verse by a decided 'one off'.
