THIS TITLE IS NOW OUT OF PRINT. A NEW COLLECTION OF SAM'S POETRY WILL BE AVAILABLE IN JULY 2016.
Sam Hunt has always believed in the essential musicality of a good poem, a belief that has become more intense over the years. Part 1 of this book, 'the chords' that give this collection its title, are a loosely connected group of poems that he feels are best described as a musical score. Stripped down, bare and lyrical, they all have their beginnings in the 'chord' heard before any words come.
These, and the other poems that make up Part 2 of Chords & Other Poems, are the work of a masterful, mature poet, whose themes of ageing and death, the cycling of generations, and the ebb and flow of relationships continue to have a strong pull for many, many New Zealanders.
