This edition presents the classic free translation by Edward Fitzgerald of the great Persian poem by the 12th century astronomer and poet - Omar Khayyam. Fitzgerald's masterful translation was first published as an anonymous pamphlet in 1859. Its colourful, exotic and remote imagery greatly appealed to the Victorian age's fascination with the Orient, while its luxurious sensual warmth acted as a striking counterpoint to the growth of scientific determinism, industrialisation and the soulless Darwinian doctrine of the survival of the fittest. Greatly praised by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Swinburne, Ruskin and William Morris, the romantic melancholy of the poem anticipates the poetry of Matthew Arnold and Thomas Hardy, while its epicurean motifs link it to the Aesthetic Movement.

Along Blueskin Road is a rich and diverse collection of poems from one of New Zealand's Leading poets. Whether tender, lyrical, quirky or comic, the poems are invariably richly imaginative and beautifully crafted.
Many of the poems were written in Dunedin during James Norcliffe's tenure as Burns Fellow and are imbued with a sense of this most poetic and individual of New Zealand's cities; other poems derive from places as diverse as Borneo and the antebellum American South.
