The Yellow Wheelbarrow

My new collection of poems from Melos was published on 4th November and launched in London on 3rd December 2019. It is available from Melos post free or you can obtain a copy here (see drop down menu to the right).

The title alludes to “The Red Wheelbarrow”, the famous poem by the modernist American poet William Carlos Williams.

Some Critical Opinion:-

"'The Migrant Ship' and 'Calais' seem to be masterpieces of metaphor for our ghastly times.”
                Paul Binding

"A remarkable collection, in that Murray’s talent for the nuances of rhyme works effortlessly into his political satire, and some truly moving poems of love.”
              John Powell Ward

"A fine and remarkably varied book.”
              Anthony Rudolf

"The collection riveted me from the very first poem.”
              Ruth O’Callaghan
