A body of poetry and prose written mainly in Aotearoa NZ. Many of Denys’ poems have been set to music which reflect his training as a concert pianist.
“These poems are organisations of language scored for the voice. It is something quite unlike anything else in our current writing: surging, resonant, Committed” (NZ Listener 15/8/98)
