From Anne Kennedy to Andrew Johnston, this exciting collection of poetry celebrates the richness of clashing ideas, voices, and genders that combine to make contemporary culture. A companion and follow-up edition to New Zealand Poets in Performance, this volume features the collected works of 28 young and mid-career New Zealand poets, who rose to prominence in the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s—notable for their fresh approach to the poetic form and distinctive but complimentary voices. Complete with short biographies and an appendix of variant readings, this compilation also includes two CDs of poets reading their own selected works.
