by Terry Locke


Maketu is Terry Locke's third book of poetry. Like his second (Home Territory) it is a sequence, this time woven around the life and times of "Pakeha-Maori" Philip Tapsell. The poems themselves trade across a range of styles and discourses and can be both lyric and parodic. Unifying them all is the image of the diving board as metaphor for the invitation to historical engagement.
