Poets' Voices is an international series of books with audio CD's which present collections of poems by significant poets whose work is not available in existing publications. Their poems appear in the original language, together with an English translation on the facing page. With each book, whenever possible, there is a CD recording of the poet reading poems in the collection in the original language and when feasible, in the English translations. Poets' Voices will also feature monographs on key poets about whose lives, works, and influence little is currently available.
Empty Texas is the second volume of poetry by Peter Minter, a young Australian poet. Following the success of his first volume, Rhythm in a Dorsal Fin, which was widely praised and made Minter the youngest poet ever to be shortlisted for the NSW Premier's Kenneth Slessor Prize for Poetry in 1996. Empty Texas represents a maturing and broadening of Minter's scope and vision. Empty Texas scrutinizes relations between language, sensuality, and cognition, and articulates a view of life and death which is utterly honest and uncompromising.
