Description

This generous selection of Bill Manhire's poems moves from playful early pieces like ‘On Originality’ and ‘How to Take off Your Clothes at the Picnic’ to major works of recent years such as ‘Hotel Emergencies’, a powerful response to contemporary atrocities, and ‘Erebus Voices’, written to be read by Sir Edmund Hillary at the 25th anniversary of the Mt Erebus tragedy.
