Synopsis This book celebrates the richness and variety of New Zealand poetry by outlining many of the numerous ways to read - and write - poems. This is an anthology, with over 80 full poems and as many again quoted in part. Each one is chosen and discussed for its quality and the fact it showcases different aspects of the genre but also because it demonstrates a significant way of understanding a poem. In addition it also contains commentary from 25 poets about what inspired them to write specific works. It covers early NZ poetry right up to the current day, poetry from all around the country, from male and female writers, and from many ethnicities.

With insightful and wide-reaching chapters from Paula Green and Harry Ricketts on such elements as form, context, features, effects and identity, this is a lively and accessible introduction to New Zealand poetry. Packed with images of poets and poetry collections, it is an invaluable book for any lover of New Zealand writing as well as for those who write themselves, as it even includes tips for writing poetry. It is titled 99 Ways into New Zealand Poetry to indicate the rich variety of ways into poetry. Most vitally, it allows the 100th way to be the unique angle you bring as a reader.
