The poetry of Ken Babstock, despite the affinity to nature which is especially dominant in his early work, is remarkable for its thematic and structural diversity. He acknowledges the smallest detail and gives pithy, elegiac and mysterious expression to the things he describes.
The poet, sinologist, translator and great mediator between Germany and China, Wolfgang Kubin, has dedicated his literary work to combining Eastern and Western perspectives in an attempt to grasp universal humanity in linguistic forms, and to find a home within words.
The poet and essayist Kate Camp New Zealand won the Jessie Mackay Award at the Montreal New Zealand Book Award in 1999 for her poetry collection »Unfamiliar Legends of the Stars«. Her poems are characterised by a demanding technicality and dark, sensitive imagery.
