AUP New Poets 05
AUP New Poets 05
Launched in 1999, AUP New Poets first introduced readers to Anna Jackson, Sonja Yelich, Janis Freegard, Chris Tse and many more significant New Zealand voices. Relaunching this year under the editorship of Anna Jackson and with a bold new look, AUP New Poets 5 includes substantial selections from the poetry of Carolyn DeCarlo, Sophie van Waardenberg and Rebecca Hawkes.

In poems about limpets and mangroves, beauty and hunger, `love, actually' and earthquake preparedness, the poets' work stands out for its fierce intelligence, formal command and dazzling vivacity. AUP New Poets 5 is the perfect introduction to the lively diversity of New Zealand poetry today.

Back with the Human Condition
Back with the Human Condition
Love. Work. Death. Complaints. It's the human condition. Whether you wrestle with it, bear it aloft, taste a little schmeck of it on your tongue or pass it along to some other unfortunate, you can't hope to fathom where you came upon it or whether there's a returns policy. Some say poetry is pulled unknowingly out of us, like birdsong. These people are annoying, seeing mystery for mystery's sake. Criticism is pulled unknowingly out of us like birdsong. Small talk is. Sleeptalk is. The first attempt at a phone message is. Poetry takes graft, craft and chisel-work. Especially limericks. 'From its brilliant, sorrowful subversions to its irreverent, exuberant nonsense, the voice here is gorgeously idiosyncratic. A cavorting, satirical imagination hits levels of comedic joy that stand out from any crowd.' -Emma Neale 'Such brio, such zip!' -Steve Braunias

Banjo Paterson the Man Who Wrote Waltzing Matilda His Life & Poetry
Banjo Paterson the Man Who Wrote Waltzing Matilda His Life & Poetry
J. B. 'Banjo' Paterson was not simply the author of the words of 'Waltzing Matilda', Australia's unofficial national anthem, and many other classic ballads such as 'The man from Snowy River' and 'Clancy of the Overflow'. Though it is now almost forgotten, he was a first-rate war correspondent for the Sydney Morning Herald, a friend of 'Breaker' Morant, an expert horseman, and later an editor of The Sydney Evening News and The Sportsman and the earliest collection of traditional Aussie bush songs. This new edition includes over 50 of his most popular poems and a new chapter on the development on his poetry.

Barry Brickell Reader
Barry Brickell Reader
"What a fine thing it is to have this full and final show of Barry's wrerterly productivity laid out expansively, matched by a photo-essay that shows Barry doing what he always did most: working, in his own self-made situ. Laid out, too, in the long thin lines he loved to trace, on paper/ canvas, in clay, in the landscape. Curling across the page in those transitional curves that were in fact his strongest formal signature; and the thing that sent the radius of his work out, in the end, to some kind of infinity." - David Craig

Because a Womans Heart is Like a Needle at the Bottom of the Ocean
Because a Womans Heart is Like a Needle at the Bottom of the Ocean
Through fun and gore, love and monsters, Sugar Magnolia Wilson's riveting first collection takes readers inside a world where past and present, fiction and fact, author and subject collide. Playful and yet not so sunny, these poems invite you in with extravagant and surprising imagery, only to reveal the uneasy, Frankenstein world within. `Sugar Magnolia Wilson's work punches holes into a parallel universe which explains ourselves back to us. Because a Woman's Heart is Like a Needle at the Bottom of the Ocean uncovers deep secrets within the reader through Wilson's intelligence, craft and close observation of being. It's an exceptional and uplifting collection which is a joy to read.' - Pip Adam `These poems are clever, intriguing, resistant, arresting, strange, funny and pleasingly unusual. Humorously self-conscious and with a wonderful facility with imagery, the overwhelming evidence in this collection is that Wilson is a significant new writer with a distinctive voice of her own.' - Mark Williams

Bees
Bees
'Beautiful and moving poetry for the real world' Jeanette Winterson, Guardian 'Wonderful ...a poet alert to every sound and shape of language' Sunday Telegraph The Bees is Carol Ann Duffy's first collection of poems as Poet Laureate. In it she uses her full poetic range: there are drinking songs, love poems, poems of political anger; there are elegies, too, for beloved friends, and -- most movingly -- the poet's own mother. Woven and weaving through the book is its presiding spirit: the bee. Sometimes the bee is Duffy's subject, sometimes it strays into the poem, or hovers at its edge. In the end, Duffy's point is clear: the bee symbolizes what we have left of grace in the world, and what is most precious and necessary for us to protect. The Bees, at once intimate and public, is a work of great power from one of our most cherished poets. 'Swooningly glorious' The Times 'Indisputably her best volume' Sunday Times 'Duffy is magnificent, grounded, heartfelt, dedicated to the notion that poetry can give us the music of life itself' Scotsman
