|Description: ||J. J. Bray - whose third collection of poetry this is- was born and educated in Adelaide. After a distinguished career at the South Australian Bar he was Chief Justice of South Australia from 1967 to 1978 and in 1968 became Chancellor of the University of Adelaide. He is now retired apart from his University appointment and a post on the Libraries Board of South Australia. J. J. Bray began to write poetry seriously in the 1950s and acknowledges the important influence of the late C.J. Jury on his work. Bray's long standing affection for the classics is evident in this collection. His two previous books of poems, Poems and Poems 1961-1971, were published in 1962 and 1972. He is also the author of three verse plays.|
