RENOIR' S BICYCLE confirms Michael Harlow' s reputation as a playful and profound poet/storyteller. His profession as a Jungian analyst, his sideline as a librettist and musician, his Greek background, and his consummate mastery of this particular art form are all evident in this new collection of prose poems. As his fellow poet Elizabeth Smither has written: ' Michael Harlow' s work is supremely concerned with imagination and motive, the symbols and mythologies that underlie human existence, the profoundest questions we face. If this sounds overly serious his techniques are light, easily accessible, painterly. The primary feeling after reading a Harlow poem is delight. ' --Elizabeth Smither
Michael Harlow is one of New Zealand' s leading poets.

Take a Risk, Trust Your Language, Make a Poem (1986) won the PEN/NZ award for Best First Book of Prose.
