'The Collected Poems of Alistair Te Ariki Campbell' is the definitive edition of one of the most important bodies of work in New Zealand poetry. Based on a spiral-bound manuscript entitled ‘Complete Poems 1947-2007’ found among Campbell’s papers after his death, this is his most substantial collection to date and the first to be published in hardback since 1981.

"The Polynesian and the European strains in Campbell’s personality and work are inseparable. Although his early poetry makes little mention of Polynesia, in its romantic and musical tone and its intense attachment to landscape it is hard not to detect something of those origins, while his later work, more directly Polynesian, nonetheless has the form and tone provided by an education in English and classical poetry." - Nelson Wattie, The Oxford Companion to New Zealand Literature
