Publisher Description

An exciting new collection from one of Australia's most daring poets. The world tomorrow is haunted only by what doesn't happen now. A new volume from Cronin is much-anticipated and The World Last Night is rich, polished and delightful. It has a confidence and grace about it and moves from wit to whimsy, encompassing profundity with the lightest of touches. This collection is intellectually invigorating but wears this erudition lightly - there is a vital sense of joy running through the poems, and a beautiful evocation of the possibilities of a joyful life. The poetry has a clarity and accessibility that invites readers into its fields of inquiry.
