About the Book

Alternately prolific and silent, Randolph Stow won the Miles Franklin Literary Award in 1958 and the Patrick White Award in 1979.

In The Land’s Meaning, John Kinsella brings together selected works of one of Australia’s finest poets. Including previously uncollected pieces, the volume’s wide ranging introduction provides a rich context for the work of this extraordinary and important poet in the most comprehensive collection of Stow’s work to date.

‘Randolph Stow’s slim body of poetry weighs more than most oeuvres many times its size. It has few equals anywhere in the world. Groundbreaking, historic and essential, it is haunting, lyrical, mythical, spiritual and anchored in place.’
John Kinsella
