(Philip Ian Hodgins)


Philip Ian Hodgins (28 January 1959 – 18 August 1995) was a critically acclaimed, award-winning Australian poet, whose work appeared in such major publications as The New Yorker. Peter Rose called him 'probably the most loved [Australian] poet of his generation', noting that 'his admirers ranged from... Alan Hollinghurst to Ron Barassi and Peter Porter to Les Murray'. Clive James ventured that 'if he had lived as long as his admired Goethe, he would probably have been Goethe', although it must be said that he was receiving the Philip Hodgins Memorial Medal at the time.
