Author(s): Joanna Margaret Paul

NZ Poetry

A book about mothering, love and loss.   

The return of a rare book of poems by one of New Zealand's most eloquent artists. Imogen, first published in 1978 by Alan Loney at Hawk Press, depicts, in sparse concrete verse, the birth, short life, and tragic death of her daughter, Imogen Rose.   

Awarded the PEN Award for Best First Book of Poetry in 1978, this 2020 edition is a beautifully produced tribute to the original with a hand-stitched, two- cover letterpress wrapper by Fernbank Studio
