The celebrated poet Eileen Duggan and the influential editor J H E Schroder were among the early appreciators of Niel Wright’s verse. This selection draws on six decades of writing, 120 Books of Wright’s epic poem The Alexandrians as well as his Post-Alexandrian work, and displays an extraordinary and wide-ranging talent. Avoiding the narrow constraints of a regionalist poetry or the bohemian outlook of the Wellington group of poets, Wright has consistently forged his own path and poetic style since the 1950s often at odds with contemporary fashion and modernist/postmodernist tendencies. As with the English poet Robert Bridges, he has sought above all to renew the prosody. Skilled in many traditional forms such as the triolet, the epigram, the ballad, the sonnet and the lyric as well as classical and epic narrative verse, the selection presents for the first time a generous sampling of his prolific output and reveals his original and remarkable voice in New Zealand poetry.
