Poem by poem, Tayi Tibble carves out a bold new way of engaging history without merely telling it, straddling modernity and ancestry, desire and exploitation. Poukahangatus maps colonisation of many kinds throughout intergenerational, Indigenous domesticity, sex, image and disjunction. Tibble channels a dazzling array of mythologies – Greek, Māori, feminist, Kiwi – peeling them apart and re-spinning them in modern terms. Warm, provocative and laugh-out-loud funny, Poukahangatus is the debut work of one of our most daring poets.
