Being a klutz of the first order, I seem to have lost the days of the
week and the plot as far as the NZ poets are concerned. Apologies
all... there should have been a New Zealander last Friday and one
this week as well. Once I sort out the rocks in my head, or
alternatively my emails, I'll get the next one posted.
In the meantime, I'm kind of intrigued to ask any New Zealanders (or
others on the list, like Doug) if there is anything about the poetry
of New Zealand which makes it distinctive. Curious to know... I have
a vague sense of something, but obviously it can't be prescriptive.
