Description or summary of the book: We sit in the warm dark watching container-ships ride on blue-black moonlit glitters. After long journeying arrived at the high tide of silence, after talk. David Malouf's new collection comes to rest at the perfect, still moment of 'silence, following talk' after its exploration of memory, imagination and mortality. With elegance and wit, these poems move from profound depths to whimsy and playfulness. As Malouf interweaves light and dark, levity and gravity, he offers a vision of life on 'this patch/ of earth and its green things', charting the resilience of beauty amidst stubborn human grace.
