"Spanning 55 years in 550 pages, the book has a monumental feel to it. Yet, for all its solid weightiness, it is the brightness and clarity of the poetry that lingers. . . . Miles from gridlocked traffic and urban development, these poems are like a timeless evening walk--be it at Karekare or Takapuna--in the most agreeable and engaging of company." --Gregory O'Brien, poet, "Metro"
"This ancient poetic theme--how to live in order to live beyond life--runs throughout this massive book, unifying the staggering profusion of forms and contents and linguistic registers." --Justin Clemens, the "Australian", on "Collected Poems"
