Songs of the City
Songs of the City
Thomson, MaryJane

HeadworX Publishers, Wellington, 2016, 83 pages.

The poems in MaryJane Thomson's third collection, Songs of the City, continue to develop her highly original poetic since her first two collections Fallen Grace and Lonely Earth announced the arrival of an exciting new talent in New Zealand poetry. Songs of the City features a mix of longer and shorter poems grouped by thematic links: Finding Your Light (Big Issue poems), Watch (faith and spiritual poems), Funny Sun Kissed Fantasy (love poems) and Conversations and Songs (music and letter poems). Songs of the City ranges over contemporary issues and offers a generational assessment of a technologically driven world. With soul, energy and a probing mind, Thomson's is an alert and urgent voice.
