A Canoe in Midstream: Poems New and Old is a collection of poems by Apirana Taylor. This, his fifth volume of poetry, includes much new work, together with many old favourites (the ones most requested at readings). Accessible, tender, hard-hitting: Api Taylor’s work assumes many forms, and is included in New Zealand schools’ English curriculum. There are not many Kiwis, young or old, who are unfamiliar with his work.

'Apirana Taylor is seer and shapeshifter, poet and warrior: strength and love find equal balance in verse that is alternately raging and lyrical, dramatic and meditative, haka and haiku . . .'
– Fiona Farrell
