'How we used to enjoy ourselves, how we used to sit together on those long autumn nights, how we dispatched your kinsfolk to a cruel death in broad daylight' An outsider from the literary establishment of his day, Nikolai Leskov is one of the most unique voices of nineteenth-century Russia, combining a profound religious spirit with a fascination for idiosyncratic characters, lurid crimes, comic absurdity and the joy of pure story. This volume contains five of his greatest short stories, including the matchless masterpiece Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, the tale of a passionate young woman who finds liberation from her stifling marriage in adultery, casual violence and cold-blooded murder. Translated with an introduction by David McDuff

A new edition of the Collected Poems of Judith Wright, one of Australia's best-loved poets This definitive collection represents the impressive poetic achievement of one of Australia's best loved and most highly respected poets.Judith Wright's Collected Poems comprises her work from 1942 to 1985 and is a fitting tribute to an outstanding poet. Demonstrating a deep love of the Australian landscape, coupled with an awareness of white history and an intense concern for Aboriginal rights, she increasingly focused on the need for wildlife preservation and conservation and was one of the first Australian environmentalists. The late Dorothy Porter referred to Judith Wright's poetry as being so lucid and so perceptive that it was 'shining with meaning'. Whether she is read for her rich evocation of the Australian land, for the truth, sensitivity and profundity of her meditations on the great themes of love, death and eternity, or for the beauty of her lyric style, Judith Wright is always supremely rewarding.
