A House on Fire: Poems by

Front Cover
Steele Roberts, 2009 - New Zealand poetry - 61 pages
The first book of a significant new talent in the New Zealand literary scene. Reviews of Tim Upperton's poems: '... In its trembling delicacy, a marvel of verbal concordance and harmony, seeking to transcend the act of memory which is its subject.' - David Eggleton '... master of the surprising image ... well made; thoughtful and crafted to last.' - Anne French '... gentle, knowing puns and an almost filmic precision ... delicate use of aural felicities, its playfulness and yet the way it reinfuses an ordinary sight with fresh wonder.' - Emma Neale '... a beautifully written poem, a singing poem ... fluent and skilful.' - Jack Ross
