No.1 (2011)

Private Bestiary: selected unpublished poems, 1944-1993
By Kendrick Smithyman, edited by Scott Hamilton (Titus Books, 2010)
reviewed by Tim Bowron (Spanish Program, University of Canterbury, New Zealand)

The poet Kendrick Smithyman (1922-1995) remains - as Scott Hamilton points out in his introduction to this volume - a largely unknown figure in the history of New Zealand literature. Despite enjoying a certain following among those who inhabit university English departments he has never acquired the level of recognition enjoyed by the likes of Allan Curnow and R.A.K. Mason (among the earlier generation of NZ poets) or James K. Baxter and Hone Tuwhare (in the younger cohort).

Roberto BolaÑo: The Romantic Dogs
reviewed by Tim Bowron (Spanish Program, University of Canterbury, New Zealand)

Since the publication in 1998 of his semi-autobiographical novel Los detectives salvajes (the English translation of which - 'The Savage Detectives' - appeared only in 2007, four years after the author's death) the self-exiled Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño has drawn critical acclaim throughout both the Hispanic and Anglophone literary worlds. Less well known than Bolaño the novelist though is Bolaño the poet - and it was as a poet that he regarded himself and wished to be recognised as above all else.
