0 Reviews
In this collection, Orr captures the essence of present-day Auckland and of his own rural Waikato childhood. His verse, containing a wide range of literary allusions, from Rimbaud to Pasternak to Neruda, locates the poet within a particular local and international context, and reflects such diverse settings as the Chilean coast, Waiheke Island, and Ponsonby.
