In these poems the tyrannies of linear time, Cartesian logic, and geometric space are overthrown, so that a Japanese U boat surfaces in Kawhia Harbour, Hongi Hika attacks twenty-first century Auckland, Ulysses comes home to a South Pacific Ithaca, Ozymandias is reborn as Hosni Mubarak, the Australian Outback fills with water, Philip Clairmont escapes from a police raid by stepping into one of his paintings, and the author returns to the South Auckland of his mispent youth. Hamilton is known as a social scientist and a political commentator as well as a poet. His study of the British historian and politician EP Thompson was published by Manchester University Press in 2011, and his weblog readingthemaps.blogspot.com has attracted more than two hundred thousand readers over the past three years. In 2010 Hamilton published an annotated edition of some of his hero Kendrick Smithyman's poems, and Feeding the Gods is illustrated and partly inspired by photographs that Smithyman took on his journeys through New Zealand.--Cover.
