Tigers at Awhitu by Sarah Broom


Tigers at Awhitu by Sarah Broom

Sarah Broom's poetry profoundly engages the landscape of her native New Zealand. Experienced as both nurturing and menacing, tender and indifferent, it is the context within which other terrains are explored: heightened states of awareness, the physical extremes of illness, the drifts and tides of close relationships, the complexities of motherhood. Intensely conscious of death, her poetry is fiercely attached to life and love.


Broom has . . . a distinctive poetic voice and vision
