Poetry reading: 'Otherwise' with New Zealand poet, John Dennison
The New Zealand Studies Network is pleased to host an evening with John Dennison, an Anglican chaplain, to mark the publication by Carcanet of his debut collection, 'Otherwise'. The poems in this collection are concerned, above all, with love, and with the strange unlooked-for manner of its appearances among us.
'A book of wonder, tender and true poems of love and intimacy, shot through with metaphysics and philosophy' - Michael Symmons Roberts
John Dennison was born in Sydney in 1978 and grew up in Tawa, New Zealand. He studied English at Victoria University of Wellington and the University of Otago in Dunedin.
