Westlake: Poems by Wayne Kaumualii Westlake


In an all-too-brief life and literary career, Wayne Kaumualii Westlake (1947–1984) produced a substantial body of poetry. He broke new ground as a poet, translated Taoist classical literature and Japanese haiku, interwove perspectives from his Hawaiian heritage into his writing and art, and published his work locally, regionally, and internationally. Westlake: Poems by Wayne Kaumualii Westlake, long overdue, includes nearly two hundred of Westlake’s poems―most unavailable to the public or never before published.
