Lost in the Foreground

Stephen Edgar

B format

Published March 2003


New book from a major but little-known Australian poet.

'Stephen Edgar is quietly building the Augustan garden of modern Australian poetry. Seldom have all the imaginable poetic qualities been combined into such a thoughtful poise, and with so easy-seeming a lyrical impulse.'
Clive James

'Even his admirers cannot have been expecting such a tour-de-force as Lost in the Foreground. ... Simply put, this is brilliant poetry, the equal of anything in English today.'
Peter Porter
