I’ve been reading the selection over the past week. It’s a good collection, a balance of known and new poets. Curnow’s best two poems – moa and you’ll know when you get there. I like the Manhire selection. Smither’s “A Cortege of Daughters’ is always striking. Mark Pirie’s included. The book’s a good addition to my library’s anthology section.
