Lost in the Foreground
ISBN 1 876631 64 3
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.'
'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.'
