Just Poetry
by Alistair Te Ariki Campbell

Just Poetry

Alistair Te Ariki Campbell's new collection contains a moving account of a happy childhood in the Cook Islands, as well as reflections on a recent visit to Rarotonga as an honoured guest. A powerful poem on the Parihaka outrage shows his sensitvity to Maori issues. Comic and witty poems range alongside the kind of eloquent lyric for which he is noted. The collection confirms Campbell's position as a leading New Zealand and Pacific poet.
