The Lark Quartet

Author(s): Elizabeth Smither

New Zealand Poetry

Selected for the 1999 Listener Women's Book Festival catalogue.

Winner of the 2000 Montana NZ Book Awards, poetry section.

Elizabeth Smither, one of New Zealand's most distinguished poets, has perfected a distinctive and elegant style in such a way that it is easy to take the real quality of these poems for granted.

But this is among her best collections, moving through a range of attentions - friends, gardens, works of art - with great charm and an unexpected and quirky wit. Her use of language is always precise and this book is full of vivid images, often in a small space, and odd illuminating juxtapositions.
