              The Blue Coat (EPUB ebook)

              By Smither, Elizabeth

              A wind that only the widest gardens can hold. A lipstick stain on a poem. A grey sky like a governess, a mother dressed by her two-year-old son, a flurry of leaves behind a tram. In The Blue Coat Elizabeth Smither examines the quotidian and the quirky for resonance, for contempla...tion, for verve.

              By Smither, Elizabeth

              In Elizabeth Smither's eighteenth collection of poetry her words are as vital as ever. The poems take the everyday - mothers and daughters, cats and horses, books and bowls, slippers and shirts - and transform them into something fresh: sometimes surreal, sometimes funny, often e...nchanted.

              The Tudor Style (EPUB ebook)

              By Smither, Elizabeth

              One of New Zealand's leading poets, Elizabeth Smither has published many collections and has won the New Zealand Book Award for Poetry. Her poems are characteristically slim, so the substantial selection of her work gathered in The Tudor Style has a striking effect. As Bill Manhi...re says, Smither's poems 'wave to one another, open doors and climb through windows'. This subtle and witty interconnectedness is a distinctive quality in her work. The poems show a delight in image, epigram and unexpected anecdotes. These swift darting poems return to themes such as women friends, gardens, figures of legend and story, religious experience and conversations. They form a striking and original whole, revealing Smither as a distinguished poet.

              Poetry. HORSE PLAYING THE ACCORDION is a new volume of poems by author Elizabeth Smither. The poetry gives witty and sincere insight into everyday life, which allows the reader to think about his own seemingly perfunctory experiences in new ways. For example, in the poem Singing ...in the rain she writes, I am caught at the bus stop like Gene Kelly / only I have an umbrella. Just two days / before I said we miss / all those good experiences: getting drenched / and here is my chance. Elizabeth Smither has written fifteen books of poetry, four novels, and five books of short stories. She was recently named the Te Mata Estate Poet Laureate.

              Elizabeth Smither's poems - brief, darting and full of unexpected insights - inhabit back gardens and vast landscapes, art galleries, restaurants, educational courses, public transport and are peopled with family and friends from the present and the past. They fit together in a q...uite distinctive way: the point is not simply the pleasure of juxtaposition, it is the way...details transform each other through mutual awareness , writes fellow poet Bill Manhire.
