Afterburner

Peter Porter

Peter Porter, along with Les Murray, is the leading English language poet of the southern hemisphere. He’s won the Queen’s Gold Medal for poetry, holds several honorary doctorates and is one of the most eminent and distinguished poets now working in the language. Following the terrific success of Max is Missing-winner of the Forward Prize for best poetry collection-Peter Porter has produced another book of great power and erudition. Afterburner-the device that provides the extra thrust to a turbojet-is a thoroughly appropriate title for this fuel-injected late work. From his lengthening perspective and high vantage, no one is better placed than Porter to give these subtle meditations on art, life and the social mores-and few could manage them with such compassion and humour. Afterburner will further enhance his reputation as one of the finest poets writing in English today.
