The poet Dorothy Porter passed away this week and will be greatly missed by friends, family and the literary community. David Malouf remembers 'She had such a vitality and a grasp of life. She had enormous energy and she was a really feisty person. And I think you see that in the way she made her poetry work, in very spare tight verse. And she not only found a readership for her verse novels, she found a very large readership. It's just very sad, and I think there'll be a lot of people out there who admire her, and are fond of her and will miss her very much'.
