Winter Eyes

Author(s): Harry Ricketts

New Zealand Poetry

Poetry as comfort, poetry as confrontation.


In Winter Eyes Harry Ricketts reaches into past and future, with other writers and artists - from Kipling to Dylan, Austen to Frame - in the crosscurrents. These are poems of friendship, of love's stranglehold, of the streets and buildings where history played out. Elegiac and bittersweet, Winter Eyes is Harry Ricketts' best yet.
