Summary
Denis Glover wrote New Zealand's most famous poem, yet his work has been out of print for many years. This fresh selection from his verse includes 'The Magpies' along with a wide variety of other poems, lyrical and satirical. Bill Manhire's selection is based on Glover's own 1981 Selected Poems, and it reveals a richer and far more lively writer than the one usually found in anthologies
