"The Powerlines" chronicles the author's ancestors' emigration from Scotland to New Zealand - two small, geographically distant countries, united in this lyrical poetry collection, which offers both a personal and poetic encounter with history and place. Through a sequence of linked poems and prose, and drawing on paintings, photographs and landscapes, "The Powerlines" presents the reader with a powerful, adventurous and technically accomplished collection which is emotionally charged and filled with voices. Exploring and questioning identity, Fellows' poetry charts our ever-changing relationship to history, to the land and the changing environment, and to the transforming and often destructive power of technology.
