Kuzma, Julian. “New Zealand Landscape and Literature, 1890–1925.” Environment and History 9, no. 4, New Zealand special issue (Nov., 2003): 451–61. doi:10.3197/096734003129342935. 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.
