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.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘… John Kinsella and Fremantle Press deserve commendation for bringing us Stow’s poems in the most comprehensive selection yet published.’ Australian Book Review

’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

‘This volume should convince anyone of the worth of Australia’s contribution to poetry.’ Colosoul
