Elemental: Central Otago Poems PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Elemental: Central Otago Poems free pdf A very special book for everyone who loves those two rugged New Zealand icons: Poet Brian Turner and the Central Otago he so loves and defends. For much of his distinguished career Turner has been a lucid and lyrical interpreter of this special part of New Zealand. About half of this collection of over 100 poems have been previously published - the other half are new. The book has an introduction written by the author, and the poems are grouped into four sections - Earth, Fire, Water and Wind- hence the title Elemental. Turner's evocative, affecting poems are accompanied by photographs by the well-known Central Otago photographer Gilbert van Reenen. Elemental 'does for poetry what 3D glasses do for the movies..' - Emma Neale
