Great Works consists of thirteen poems, each about a different freezing works in Aotearoa New Zealand. Satirising the colonial-pastoral mythologies through which the local landscape has often been interpreted, the collection gives due attention to an industry which, in spite of its centrality to the nation’s economic history, has remained conspicuously absent from its art and literature. Here, as in Batailles, ‘the slaughterhouse is linked to religion’: Great Works offers a darkly-comic view of sacrifice and slaughter in ‘God’s Own Country’.
