PanARMENIAN.Net - The Armenian-Australian community joins the wider Australian community in mourning the passing of legendary Australian poet, Les Murray, 80, who passed away on 29th April 2019.

Murray is one of Australia's great modern poets who featured the Armenian Genocide in his critically acclaimed book "Freddy Neptune" and had his work translated into over 20 languages.

He is an Order of Australia recipient and listed as one of Australia's 100 National Living Treasures by the National Trust of Australia.
