              Harry Ricketts has written and edited more than thirty books, but it is his poetry that has been the most constant, and the most personal in tone. From his 1989 collection Coming Here - in which he wrote the first of his 'Secret Life' poems - to his 2018 collection Winter Eyes, w...hich reviewer Tim Upperton called 'unsettling, moving, both estranging and empathetic', Ricketts has written of friendship, youth, romance, loss, and the small moments that carry a lifelong weight, or light, within us. His voice is recognisable for its humility, intelligence and warmth. In Selected Poems, its full range is represented for the first time.

              A Made-Up Place: New Zealand in Young Adult Fiction
                 

              A Made-Up Place: New Zealand in Young Adult Fiction (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Jackson, Anna; Miles, Geoffrey; Ricketts, Harry; Schaefer, Tatjana; Walls, Kathryn

              "Most New Zealand writing for young adults is designed to appeal to adolescents everywhere. Is there anything, then, that is characteristically 'New Zealand' about it? To what extent does it derive from local experience, or address a local audience? Focusing on a series of overla...pping topics (race, sport, money, history, Englishness, future fictions, utopias and dystopias, religion and the 'Maori Gothic'), the contributors to this volume suggest that 'New Zealandness' is a sutble, at time almost invisible, but nevertheless pervasive concern in New Zealand young adult fiction"--Back cover.

              This absorbing, widely praised biography brings a fresh and sympathetic eye to the career of the prolific writer whose popular Jungle Books and collections of poems like Barracks Room Ballads as well as the masterly novel Kim propelled him to the pinnacle of literary success befo...re he was forty. With illuminative reinterpretations of his work, it also follows Kipling through the next three decades that took this complex, troubled, and brilliant man to tragic personal disappointments and galling disrepute among the lions of literary fashion. In all, biographer Ricketts brings vibrantly to life the diverse worlds of imperialist India and Victorian London that both inspired and betrayed Kipling's genius.
