This Twilight Menagerie: A Whakanui of 40 Years of Poetry Live!


Auckland’s Poetry Live! Aotearoa's longest running live poetry group, celebrates forty colourful, rowdy, and electric years, in This Twilight Menagerie, an anthology featuring the intergenerational poetry of seventy-nine leading, emerging, and fledgling New Zealand poets influenced by this cultural institution, which was founded by the late prominant poet David Mitchell, a former Katherine Mansfield Menton fellow.

A rich collection that will move, confront, uplift, inspire, and delight. 219pp, including historic archival posters, other visual media, and reminiscences. A milestone, highly limited print run, and the most significant publication to be released by Poetry Live! since The Globe Tapes of 1985. A must have for poetry afficianados and lovers of cultural history.
