About this product
- DescriptionC.K. Stead's Collected Poems is a milestone in English-language poetry: half a century's work from fourteen collections, along with early uncollected poems. A New Zealander, Stead's family connections in that country start in the early 1830s, and his poems reflect this background. He has also travelled widely, and the poems have travelled with him. He is a writer - velist, literary historian and critic, as well as poet - who occupies literature like a landscape, his poetry deep-rooted in classical and European literary traditions, at ease in an international literary community. Collected Poems reveals a craft deepening decade by decade, a growing delight in its supple possibilities. With C.K. Stead's preface and a section of his tes illuminating the background to many of the poems, this Collected Poems is an essential compendium of the poetry of a major writer.
- Author BiographyC.K. Stead was born in Auckland, New Zealand in 1932. He has published thirteen collections of poems and two of short stories, eleven novels and six books of literary criticism.
