Story: Māori fiction – ngā tuhinga paki

Te ao mārama

This table lists the authors and work that appeared in the third volume of Te ao mārama, a five-volume bilingual collection of fiction and non-fiction writing by Māori authors. It was edited by Witi Ihimaera, and successive volumes were published between 1992 and 1996. Ihimaera selected the work of living or recently deceased writers, so the collection is representative of modern Māori writing. The third volume, Te puawaitanga o te kōrero: the flowering (1993) concentrates on writers who started to be published in the early 1980s.
