Wrap Up

Brand new sealed found in a old warehouse a great find.

Of Rotuman, Tongan and European/Pakeha ancestry, David Eggleton was raised in Auckland and Fiji. As well as his poetry, Eggleton writes extensively on New Zealand art and music, edits New Zealand’s pre-eminent literary journal, Landfall and is an acclaimed literary reviewer, having been awarded the New Zealand Reviewer of the Year title six times.

Eggleton’s Pacific heritage and passion for poetry performance result in poems which have a strong oral and rhythmic quality. Assonance, alliteration, sibilance, repetition and rhyme are packed tightly into his work, as his reading of the opening lines of ‘Grass’ illustrates:
