Eyewear is glad to feature a new poem by Chris Wallace-Crabbe, the Australian poet, this chilly Monday in late October. Wallace-Crabbe (born 6 May 1934) is an Emeritus Professor in The Australian Centre, University of Melbourne. He was Visiting Professor of Australian Studies at Harvard University. He is now chair of the Australian Poetry Centre. His New and Selected will be out from Carcanet in 2011.
WHAT IS IT, THEN?
