Elizabeth Smither was appointed New Zealand's third Te Mata Estate Poet Laureate in 2000. The laureateship is for a term of two years and has the twin aims of honouring the work of New Zealand's foremost poets and raising the profile of poetry in the community. Red Shoes, the collection that resulted from Elizabeth Smither's term as Poet Laureate, celebrates the pleasure, not just to be had from wearing red shoes (or a red dress), but friendships, parties, music, getting drenched at a bust stop. In these poems you will find young and old, meditations on a favourite book about death, gardens, and proven methods of making progress.
