Summary "A lyrical genealogy as lush as the terrains it inhabits, 'Intercolonial' unburdens a tremendous hybrid swathe of Australian and New Zealand history... Oliver weaves an elliptical thread: from Kupe, arriving in New Zealand; to Solomon Blay, the notable executional of Van Diemen's Land; to Thomas McCormack, Oliver's great grandfather..."--Back cover
Analysis Australian
Notes "I started writing 'Intercolonial' in Australia sometime back in the mid-90s. The poem was put aside for long periods and finally completed in New Zealand. This work therefore might be seen as a transtasman creation"--Preface
