In it we find Murray at his nearmiraculous best. The collection--named for a kind of house distinctive to Murrays native Australia--exhibits both his unfailing grace as a writer and his ability to write in any voice, style, or genre: there are story poems, puns extended to poem length, history--and myths in miniature, aphoristic fragments, and domestic portraits. As ever, Murrays evocation of the natural world is unparalleled in its inventiveness and virtuosity. The Biplane Houses is ardent, eloquent, enchanting poetry.
