Janet Frame Literary Trust spokeswoman Pamela Gordon, Frame's niece, said poetry was always her aunt's first love but her novels and autobiographical writing had received more attention and success.She was delighted by the prize. 'I'm really, really happy, just a little bit sad that my aunt isn't here to enjoy it too.'Despite a prolific output, including 11 novels and a three-volume autobiography, Frame had only one collection of poetry published during her lifetime, The Pocket Mirror in 1967. She died of cancer in 2004 at the age of 79.
