Author(s): JEFFREY PAPAROA HOLMAN

Poetry

Jeffrey Paparoa Holman is an acclaimed poet, historian and teacher. His first major collection, As Big as a Father, was shortlisted in the 2003 Montana New Zealand Book Awards, and his next, The Late Great Blackball Bridge Sonnets, was warmly received by reviewers and readers alike. David Eggleton wrote of that volume, 'Holman affirms the working class spirit...his poems are vivid with imagery. This is poetry as local history and vice-versa.' The late Harvey McQueen, clsing Jeffrey's most recent collection, Fly Boy (Steele Roberts, 2010), writes, 'I'm at home again, enriched by Holman's enthusiasm, rapture, questioning, explanation. His volume is an example of why I like poetry and poets who make it'. Jeffrey's most recent work of history is Best of Both Worlds: The Story of Elsdon Best and Tutakangahau (Penguin 2010). He was recently the 2011 Writer in Residence at the University of Waikato, Hamilton. He lives in Christchurch and is a senior adjunct fellow in the School of Humanities at the University of Canterbury.
