Short Poems of New Zealand

Author(s): Bornholdt Jenny

Poetry & Essays

I've begun to think of short poems as being the literary equivalent of the small house movement. Small houses contain the same essential spaces as large houses do. Both have places in which to eat, sleep, bathe and sit; they're the same, except small houses are, well, smaller. -Jenny Bornholdt

Funny, startling, poignant, illuminating, and always succinct, this anthology celebrates the many moods and forms of the short poem and demonstrates its power in holding our attention. Included here are famous names like Manhire, Glover, Bethell and Cochrane, amongst many new and rediscovered gems.
