Niuean literature

Written Niuean literature (as distinct from oral literature) does not have an established tradition. The island's one notable writer is the poet and novelist John Pule, author of the novels The Shark that Ate the Sun (Ko E Mago Ne Kai E La, 1992), Burn My Head in Heaven (Tugi e ulu haaku he langi, 2000) and Restless people (Tagata kapakiloi, 2004), as well as of a number of poems.
