Feeding the Dogs: Poems
This book is a collection of poems from a new poet whose work has been widely published in New Zealand journals. Cooke spent her childhood in rural Southland and the last twenty years in Otago, so she blends town and country themes effortlessly. Her poetry shows a strong relationship with the landscape and a particularly southern sensibility. She handles language with ease and her work is strong and confident, with striking imagery.
