Expecting Miracles

Poems of love, loss, comic insight and sensory delight. At 81, Peter Bland's new work continues to dazzle and amuse. PN Review praises his 'gentle but powerful assurance' and Poetry London the 'intoxicating feeling' his poetry evokes.

Listen to Greg O'Brien discuss Expecting Miracles and Collected Poems with Kim Hill on National Radio. "[a] terrific new collection ..." -- Paula Green. "[Kevin Ireland and Peter Bland] have lived through a lot of the flurry and scuffle of modernisms and post-modernisms, not entirely unconscious or unaffected, probably formally less constrained and more inventive than would have been the case if those movements had not occurred, but not too fussed by fashion either; concerned most of all to mean something, to make good sense, to write well, feel deeply and be understood." -- C K Stead, NZ Poet Laureate.
