Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Unsurprisingly, Douglas Lilburn doesn't date -his ideas are as fresh and pertinent now as when he wrote these lectures. And he knows that audiences matter as much as writers, artists and musicians. He is especially good on heritage and future, on the need for wonder and imaginative awe, and on the sheer hard work involved when artists decide to speak for themselves. He is also alert to the tricky negotiations New Zealanders need to manage between the local and the global. Above all, he shows us not only how to stand upright, but also how to dance around a little.
