Overview

Comprising a substantial new collection by an award-winning poet, this anthology ranges from love poems and elegies to satire, protest, and metaphysical speculation. The book concludes with a highly original piece, presenting a raw and risky sequence written in the wake of major surgery. The entire selection contends that everything ultimately plays a part in defining the contours of love, loss, and longing that form the map of the human heart. Featuring many compositions that reflect the natural setting of the author’s home in Central Otago, New Zealand, this compilation boldly travels beyond mere poems of landscape, resulting in a strong representation of one of the country’s foremost creative voices.

From the Publisher
