Denis Glover is one of New Zealand's outstanding literary figures. This first comprehensive biography investigates the turbulent life of this celebrated poet., typographer, publisher, wit, sportsman and war hero, and offers an illuminating portrayal of the New Zealand cultural scene during its most vital decades. Denis Glover: His Life presents a multi-faceted individual with an almost Elizabethan breadth of talents and enthusiasms, whose boistrous, bibulous, aggressive, unpredictable, extroverted and frequently scandalous behaviour masked a sensitive personality of considerable complexity.
