(p.135) CHAPTER 8 Allen Curnow Travels
Twentieth Century Poetry

Peter Robinson

Oxford University Press

This chapter forms a consideration of the poetry that the New Zealand poet Allen Curnow wrote about his overseas experience. The poetry occasioned by his various sojourns in England, America, and Italy is explored, and in particular how an outsider addresses the political realities of places visited. There are discussions of Curnow's poems about the Kennedy era, and about the kidnap and murder of Aldo Moro by the Red Brigades in 1970s Italy. The chapter concludes with a section on ‘mental travelling’ and on long-distance flying.

Keywords:   tourists, J. F. Kennedy, Italian politics, Aldo Moro, Red Brigades, mental travelling
