Mirabile Dictu

Michele Leggott

Mirabile Dictu by Michele Leggott

"Leggott continues to write complex lyrics, sampling thought and song, voice and vision." Charles Bernstein, Notable Books "There is a flow in Leggott's writing that reminds me of reading Shelley: the same feeling of being swept up into the sky and returned again, with the sense of the present altered and set in proportion." – Elizabeth Smither, Dominion Post

Young Knowledge: The Poems of Robin Hyde. A Dominion Post's Book of the Week selection (Elizabeth Smither) and named one of the Listener's ‘Best Books of 2003.'

Extra! Extra! How the People Made the News

David Hastings

Extra! Extra! How the People Made the News by David HastingsFrom the mid-19th-century rivalry between the New Zealander and the Southern Cross to the 20th-century dominance of the New Zealand Herald and the Auckland Star, the story of Auckland's newspapers is an engrossing battle of wits that reveals much about the history of the people and the press in New Zealand. This comprehensively researched narrative not only tells the story of Auckland's first newspapers, but also tackles larger questions. The newspaper wars of 19-century Auckland were life-or-death struggles, with the odds heavily in favor of death. This book tells the story of the newspapers,...

Makers of Fortune

R. C. J. Stone

Makers of Fortune by R. C. J. StoneSo many businesses rose and fell in nineteenth-century Auckland that the city was called a 'graveyard of enterprise'. By far the most serious and general collapse came during the decade of depression and banking crises which overtook the whole colony after 1885. Auckland's commercial elite, which had dominated the city's business for a generation and had launched some of New Zealand's most important financial institutions, was discredited. Some of its members were impoverished. In the 1890s this failure was explained in moralistic terms. It was seen as the just penalty for speculative rashness....

Young Logan Campbell

R. C. J. Stone

Young Logan Campbell by R. C. J. StoneSir John Logan Campbell is known as the Father of Auckland; he is synonymous with that city. As this first volume of his biography shows, however, he was not particularly enamoured of a pioneering life or of the settlement in which he led it. His purpose in coming to New Zealand and remaining here was to make enough money to live the life of a leisured gentleman in Europe. By the end of this book, he seemed to have achieved his goal. Campbell left, probably, a more comprehensive set of papers than any other early settler. From them, R. C. J. Stone has told a story which not only reveals the complexities...

The Father and His Gift: John Logan Campbell's Later Years

R. C. J. Stone

The Father and His Gift: John Logan Campbell's Later Years by R. C. J. StoneFew New Zealand biographies are so rich in social and personal detail. Written with the vivid touches of a novelist, The Father and his Gift completes the story of Sir John Logan Campbell, venerated in old age as the Father of Auckland, and presents a compelling portrait of Auckland. The final volume of Logan Campbell's life story traces his struggles not only to keep his businesses afloat but to preserve intact the One Tree Hill estate which he had determined to leave to the public of New Zealand. The number and intimacy of the papers left by Campbell have enabled Professor Stone to bring his...

In the Glass Case: Essays on New Zealand Literature

C. K. Stead

In the Glass Case: Essays on New Zealand Literature by C. K. SteadOver a quarter of a century, C. K. Stead has built up a widely accessible collection of reviews and critical essays on New Zealand literature. In the Glass Case covers a wide spectrum of New Zealand writers, who are examined from a remarkably consistent viewpoint. The title is symbolic: New Zealand books were once held in a glass-fronted bookcase at the University of Auckland library. These were considered rare, although they are now out on the open shelves. Stead's views are often controversial and provoke discussion and passionate debate from other critics. This is not only an enlightening...

The Lifeguard: Poems 2008¿2013

The Lifeguard: Poems 2008¿2013 by Ian Wedde

Ian Wedde's latest collection of poems are a complex mix of rhapsody, fear, and humor, and the prose explore the contradictions between life's pool-side surfaces and frightening undertows. Opening with a major new series of poems "The Lifeguard," it concludes with another long sequence, "Shadow Stands Up," in which a world of Platonic memory and tidal recurrence is observed from a window-seat in Auckland's conspicuously green-branded Link bus. Bringing together work from the past five years by one of New Zealand's most outstanding contemporary poets, this collection shows a master of the are...
