Environment and History

New Zealand Landscape and Literature, 1890-1925

Julian Kuzma

Environment and History 9(2003): 451-461

New Zealand's literature (1890-1925) offers a wealth of information for the environmental historian that is unparalleled by most other countries. A major theme of New Zealand late colonial literature was the removal of the indigenous bush and its transformation into a British-modelled pastoral paradise. The period's poetry and fiction conveys valuable insights into perceptions and attitudes towards this transformation, which cannot be ascertained from other documentary sources.
