The Art of Excavation

Author(s): Leilani Tamu

NZ - Poetry / Plays

In The Art of Excavation, poet Leilani Tamu delves into the complex and multifaceted nature of the region that we know as the Pacific. In poetry that is by turns fierce and political, tender and insightful, contemplative and intimate, Leilani creates a beautiful ‘ie tōga (finely woven mat) that weaves together living memory in a way that also acknowledges and places the past at the centre of the narrative.
