A new collection from this now-established poet, Making Lists for Frances Hodgkins is a poetic memoir in the light of art. It follows on from Paula Green's previous solo poetry collection, Crosswind, which included collaborations with artists. Making Lists for Frances Hodgkins was inspired by an invitation from the Auckland City Art Gallery to talk about their 2005 Frances Hodgkins exhibition. The eight opening poems focus on eight Hodgkins paintings and often use Green's characteristic list structure; the next part includes a number of autobiographical poems, lyrical and often beautiful, about the role art has played in her life. In the third section art moves into poetry, they intermingle in the works of some favourite artists and in the context of a recent illness; and, finally, a long poem 'Letter to Anne Kennedy' brings the main themes together. This is a polished collection from a fine poet.
