Twenty Contemporary New Zealand Poets PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Twenty Contemporary New Zealand Poets free pdf Twenty Contemporary New Zealand Poets showcases the freshness and vitality of current New Zealand poetry. Starting in 1986, it captures turning points in the work of Allen Curnow and Bill Manhire, and charts the wave of major poets who started publishing in the late 1980s, like Jenny Bornholdt and Bernadette Hall. Younger writers such as Glenn Colquhoun, Robert Sullivan and Tusiata Avia explore new ways of making art out of the bracing challenge of living in a bicultural and multicultural society. An introduction by the editors and reflections by the poets themselves illuminate themes and contexts. A joint publication with the leading British poetry publisher Carcanet, this anthology forms an indispensable map of New Zealand poetry for readers at home and abroad.
