Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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.

Contributors: Tusiata Avia ... [et al.].

Selection of poems written from 1986 onwards.

Allen Curnow -- Hone Tuwhare -- C.K. Stead -- Vincent O'Sullivan -- Ian Wedde -- Bill Manhire -- Elizabeth Smither -- Brian Turner -- Cilla McQueen -- Dinah Hawken -- Gregory O'Brien -- Jenny Bornholdt -- Fiona Farrell -- Bernadette Hall -- Geoff Cochrane -- Robert Sullivan -- James Brown -- Glenn Colquhoun -- Anne Kennedy -- Tusiata Avia.
