This week I have added to Brianna’s discussion on Les Murrays poem “The Cool Green”
You raised an interesting point, suggesting that the issues argued within the poem are still relevant in our culture despite the poem being written over a decade ago. Poetry often documents the human experience, and I think because of this, many poems we have studied in Australian Literature still feel ‘relevant’ despite their age. Also, a beautiful analogy between Murrays idea that “we are money’s genitals” and reproductive organs. We are the link that creates the unbreakable cycle of money. Great insight!
