Stewart Levitt

LAWYER | ACTIVIST | POET

Stewart Levitt is best known for his work as a lawyer, successfully fighting public causes against banks and governments for the underdog, be they Indigenous outliers or down-at-the heel farmers. 

Levitt is also a poet whose verse exudes passion, laced with compassion.  His recently released anthology of poetry, “Too Soon to Be Late“, was Levitt’s take on an “Australian retrospective” and covers race relations, international politics, religion and the human condition.

We Mortals” is the international edition of “Too Soon to Be Late“, published with the US reader in mind and includes new work about Australia’s bushfires. He also vents on “Green” concerns and addresses Jewish identity in the face of latterday antisemitism, as well as reflecting on his recent visit to a remote Indigenous community on the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf. It is available for purchase on Amazon.

our readers say

Inspired use of language

“Such an utterly unusual book deserves rapid recognition, not just for its inspired use of language and images but because it states truths that our whole planet’s populace ought to be anxious to hear.”

Giles Auty – Spectator and Quadrant Contributor, author, artist & art critic
A crusader for the innocent

“These pages document the interior life of a man who, it must be said, has come wonderfully to personify Sydney’s grit and colour. A villain’s advocate and a crusader for the innocent, Stewart Levitt has embraced every one of life’s contradictions.”

Linton Besser – acclaimed author
