Abstract:

"This book is a retrospective of Arapera Blank's writing, covering a period between 1958 and 1990. One of the first Maori to write and be published in English, and the first Maori writer to win the Katherine Mansfield Award, her poetry, short stories, and essays articulate the Maori experience, as they transitioned from rural communities to the city. Loss of language and culture are central concerns, but there is also an optimism about who Maori could become in a contemporary context"--Back cover.
