Poetry and Other Animals: Amy Brown, Therese Lloyd, and Ashleigh Young
Three poets, representing the imaginative range and unique voice of a new generation in New Zealand poetry, join us to share a sampler of their recent work and discuss how their poems came to be. Last year saw the release of Therese Lloyd's Other Animals and Ashleigh Young's Magnificent Moon, two stunning debuts. Amy Brown's second poetry collection, The Odour of Sanctity, reinvents a neglected form - the epic. They reflect on three ways into New Zealand poetry with Harry Ricketts.
