Description

Winner of the 1997 Montana Book Awards, poetry section. This comprehensive Anthology of New Zealand Poetry in English spans more than a century, revealing the richness, vitality and range of styles and voices to be found in the body of New Zealand verse. Established figures such as Ursula Bethell, Allen Curnow, James K. Baxter, Hone Tuwhare and Alistair Te Ariki Campbell are given strong selections, as are such previously underrated figures as Eileen Duggan and Mary Stanley. Contemporary poets are generously represented, with major selections from such pivotal figures as Vincent O'Sullivan, Lauris Edmond, C. K. Stead, Bill Manhire, Ian Wedde and Elizabeth Smither. With an eye to both fairness and range, the editors have compiled a collection of New Zealand poetry remarkable as much for its diversity of poetic forms as for its wealth of voices.
