Greetings from the deepest south.
Inspired by the news from Alaska, here's news about two events
happening at the Milton world's southernmost bastion, Dunedin, NZ
First, a meeting of the city's poets at which I held forth in varying
idioms to these mainly free-verse-writing bards, back in October. Go to
Then, tomorrow, at 6.30 pm, which approximates (given our longitude)
to the hour of Milton's birth, we shall read his life through his
poems, cut a birthday cake and drink a toast to him. This is at the
Dunediin Public Library, which is very big on poetic and other
Can I suggest that as a venue for future Miltonic events which want
to join Town with Gown the public library of many other cities might
welcome a Milton-performing event?
