In The Glass Case from the Author: C. K. Stead. Over a quarter of a century, C. K. Stead has built up a widely accessible collection of reviews and critical essays on New Zealand literature. In the Glass Case covers a wide spectrum of New Zealand writers, who are examined from a remarkably consistent viewpoint. The title is symbolic: New Zealand books were once held in a glass-fronted bookcase at the University of Auckland library. These were considered rare, although they are now out on the open shelves. Stead's views are often controversial and provoke discussion and passionate debate from other critics. This is not only an enlightening look into New Zealand literature and C. K. Stead, it is also a very enjoyable read.

Contemporary New Zealand Poets In Performance from the Author: Jack Ross. "After the stunning success of Classic New Zealand Poets in Performance, AUP and editors Jack Ross and Jan Kemp now present readings on two CDs from a later generation of 27 poets born from 1944 to 1958. These are the great poets of the 1960s and 1970s such as Ian Wedde, Bill Manhire, Sam Hunt, Jan Kemp, Alan Brunton, as well as some whose names were made more recently such as Bernadette Hall, Stephanie de Montalk, Anne French and Keri Hulme. The CDs of the poets reading their own work are accompanied by a book of the texts of the poems reproducing them exactly as read, as well as brief biographies and bibliographies of each poet. The poets are arranged chronologically by date of birth and each reads for approximately five minutes in recordings made chiefly in 1974 and/or 2004. They were chosen for the quality and significance of their work and their commitment to voice and performance as an integral part of their poetry."--Publisher's website.
