Live Encounters Poetry & Writing
Australia – New Zealand May 2021

I think of poetry as revealing to me, as writer or reader, what I think and feel most intensely but also most deeply, but in a spirit of play, both verbally and in active consciousness. What I hope to discover there is my ‘real’ identity.
– David Malouf
in conversation with Denise O’Hagan.
