Speaking to the Islands of the Ancestors: Four Long Poems and Commentaries
By Denys Trussell

These four poems are the composite image of a history, a history that is the poet's and perhaps that of other New Zealanders whose ancestry lies in the northern hemisphere. Arriving for the first time in London at the age of forty=five, he finds it to be ?the dense and complex eye of our dark Hawaiiki. Slowly he unearths what he calls an archaeology of the soul the past as a set of presences that still speak strongly in the mind. He speaks back. A dialogue begins. It involves not just Britain and Aotearoa/New Zealand, but France, Italy, Spain and 'new' world cousins, Mexico and the United States. This is Denys Trussell's seventh book of poems.
