Beschreibung

David Mitchell was one of New Zealands great poetic characters from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s: poet, lover, political activist, cricketer, impresario, mysterium and, to some, an all-round pain in the arse. Steal Away Boy re-introduces Mitchell to a new generation and collects widely scattered poems in book form for the first time. A great partisan of poetry in performance, Mitchell initiated readings in various Auckland hotels and was a participant in the famous readings at the Barry Lett Gallery. In 1972 Mitchells only full-length collection, Pipe Dreams in Ponsonby, was published and became an instant classic, selling thousands of copies in two editions. It broke new ground and won a Commonwealth literary prize. David Mitchell fully supported the Steal Away Boy project and his private papers and manuscripts have been made available to Edmond and Roberts by his daughter. In their generous selection of poems and comprehensive introduction, Martin Edmond and Nigel Roberts present afresh the lyrical, beat intensity of an antipodean hipster & iconic poet.

Klappentext

David Mitchell was one of New Zealand's great poetic characters from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s: poet, lover, political activist, cricketer, impresario, mysterium and, to some, an all-round pain in the arse. Steal Away Boy re-introduces Mitchell to a new generation and collects widely scattered poems in book form for the first time. A great partisan of poetry in performance, Mitchell initiated readings in various Auckland hotels and was a participant in the famous readings at the Barry Lett Gallery. In 1972 Mitchell's only full-length collection, Pipe Dreams in Ponsonby, was published and became an instant classic, selling thousands of copies in two editions. It broke new ground and won a Commonwealth literary prize. David Mitchell fully supported the Steal Away Boy project and his private papers and manuscripts have been made available to Edmond and Roberts by his daughter. In their generous selection of poems and comprehensive introduction, Martin Edmond and Nigel Roberts present afresh the lyrical, beat intensity of an antipodean hipster & iconic poet.
