I just applauded Lorde for standing up and saying boldly to the world: ‘I am a feminist.’ Brava!
I thought I would post a link from a tweet by Don Share: Ten Essential Titles in Contemporary Poetry for Winter reading. Looks like some interesting books in this line up that I might chase up. But only one woman poet (Linda Bierds) – definitely want to read her book.
Got me wondering what I would post if I sampled ten essential NZ Poetry Books to read over summer. Hmmm. Looking forward to Bernadette Hall, Selina Tusitala Marsh, Louise Wallace currently reading and loving).
Meanwhile feel free to send me your TEN Essential Poetry Books for Spring Reading (or FIVE or TWO or ONE) and I will post them.
‘Pay attention: a river of stones’ edited by Fiona Robyn and Kaspalita, published by Lulu, and Sam Hunt’s ‘Doubtless’.
