Summary
Allen Curnow (1911-2001) was at the time of his death regarded as one of the greatest of all poets writing in English. For seventy years, from Valley of Decision (1933) to The Bells of Saint Babel's (2001), Curnow's poetry was always on the move - from his early approaches to New Zealand identity and myth to later work concerned with the philosophical encounter between word and world. Curnow also played a major role in New Zealand life as editor, critic, commentator and anthologist, as well as a much-loved writer of light verse under the penname of Whim Wham. In his later years he acquired an impressive international reputation, winning the Commonwealth Prize for Poetry and the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry. Througout his career, Curnow selected and revised his poetry, constantly seeking to 'make it new'. For the first time this book brings together all the poems he collected in his lifetime. The extensive notes reproduce his comments on individual volumes and single poems, and include relevant editorial guidance
