Peter Dale Scott
Peter Dale Scott's Murmur of the Stars is a work of extraordinary insight and charm, threaded through with the world vision of the diplomat and political activistand with the more intimate, equally intense recognition of the humanist. Poet, professor, scholar, translator, travellerScott's rich and varied life experience is wondrously reflected in this collection of his poetry. Praise for previous books: "[Coming to Jakarta is] a work of great richness and complexity." - Thom Gunn, Times Literary Supplement "The wisdom that Scott achieves in [Listening to the Candle], and that he embodies in its flexible inclusive structure, is that we must search for a way between what he calls the 'brutality' of civilization and the mindless anarchy that he says will soon lead to brutality." - Daniel Morris, Harvard ReviewSignal
