An anthology of twentieth century New Zealand poetry
The third edition of this anthology captures the new air of self-confidence that shines in the work of the current generation of New Zealand poets. The volume devotes additional space to the writings of an exciting group of younger poets and includes--for the first time--the work of Lauris Edmond (who won the Commonwealth Poetry Prize in 1985), Elizabeth Smither, and Brian Turner; it also presents recent poems by such older or established writers as Curnow, Smithyman, Adcock, and Ireland.
